I think you should. You could call it "What I likes about Yale."

I titled my Yale 250 essay: "Me: A Story of Awesomeness"

By the way, I found the 250 word "requirement" to be too confining. My Yale 250 essay was 932 words.

I worried that Yale might take issue with my decision to exceed the 250-word limit, so I attached an alternate Yale 250 just in case: It's the speeding ticket addendum that I wrote for the University of Minnesota. It comes in at a lean 172 words.

I think you need to read how writers create their title and how many words they include in the content of your essay. Here is an example of an essay, this is a law essay, they are into law essay writing services, you can ask help for your essay. try to contact them. Good luck :D

And would the words in the title count towards the 250?

I sent mine without the title. Seemed like the safest path with Yale.

Can I just put "250 WORD ESSAY" as the title?

I don't know for sure, but if you just included either "250 Word Essay" or "Question 7" as the third line of your header then you shouldn't have to subtract a few precious words.

I just pasted the skull & bones logo at the top..... followed by the number 69, because let's face it, who doesn't like the number 69?

I think the funniest part is that you applied for both Yale and the University of Minnesota. What is your top choice?

As did I. One is a super reach, one is a safety. Plus Minnesota hands out fee waivers, so why not?

If it does, I'm sure it requires proper grammar.
