Why Northwestern word limit?

Postby freestallion » Fri Aug 05, 2011 1:33 pm

Hey everyone,

I'm trying to work on my Why Northwestern, and it is really strong so far...but way too long. :( I'll have to cut it down. Does anyone know the word limit or the paragraph limit? I was trying to find the application, but it seems they have taken down last year's PDF.

Thanks!

The old app didn't have a word limit, but it did say "one or two paragraphs." I'll do a Why Northwestern swap if you'd like.

Especially since you aren't a splitter like me! :wink:
