Thanks, I just freaked out a little bit when one poster mentioned writing a 20 page proposal!
I would definitely mention your anticipated admission timeline. Also bear in mind that you must
do so if the project contemplates direct representation (which is almost always the case, even at places like ACLU).
The person who mentioned the 20 page proposal created it together with their boss and submitted to the school. If I received a 20 pager from a student hoping to be sponsored by us, I would be quite surprised (and not in a good way).
The fact of the matter is that most students don't know enough to formulate a coherent and concrete proposal. It's the org's job to help you get to that point, bearing in mind their mission, their strategic plans and their anticipated needs.When I look at proposals, my only expectation is to gauge what area of our work that person is interested in. A single page is more than enough to get that information across.
