How Short is too short?

Postby MU2009 » Mon Jan 25, 2010 3:26 am

Mandatory Essay that says "no longer than 600 words" that is to be submitted along with the Personal Statement. My Mandatory Essay is just 400 words but it is basically what I want to say without adding a bunch of "fluff." This won't be looked at as "too short" in adcomms minds, will it?

If I were an adcomm, I'd look favorably on people who were concise. The PS I sent to some schools was a page and a half.

Also, M-I-Z?
