    Word limit on PS

    Hey guys. Just wondering how strict the 500 recommended word limit is for the PS when applying. Mine is 900 words, should I cut it down some more?

    @Medman, my sentiments exactly lol. My UG years were bad, at least in the beggining. Attitude was bad, marks probably worse, but buckled down for the last little bit and now i'm in good form. My HC guns haven't been tapped yet, but they're loaded and rdy

    @don, hmmm good idea. Just the benefit of having extra time for the Step 1 and 2 seems worth it. Well, lets cross our fingers and hope

    Well, first of all, the word limit of your personal statement may vary significantly depending on the institution you're applying to. Some universities require potential students to write between 500 and 1000 words, and others can demand up to 1500. So when you're asking about the volume of your PS, state more specifically, what university or at least speciality you're talking about. If the admission committee wants you to be brief, better do not write a lengthy statement and include all important information in it.
