Took a previous administration, but I decided I needed to wrap things up once I flipped over to the back

Previous administration - wrote for about 10-15 minutes, didn't fill a whole page. It didn't affect my cycle whatsoever.

Two or three paragraphs, going down to maybe the last 3 lines of the front (so about half a page, maybe a little more).

Decided it didn't matter, wrote one giant eyesore of a paragraph that went about 3 lines onto the back page.

Four paragraphs. Halfway down the back of the page. Took about 15 minutes. Stared at the clocked for the other 20.

I filled most of the front page. Glanced back at it, realized that pretty much the entire thing was barely legible, and proceeded to take a 15 minute power nap.

Finished about half of the second page. It was all drivel and nonsense though, my head was killing me and I wanted to puke. I doubt it makes any sense at all.

Filled the entire thing, front and back with literally a millimeter or two left to spare.

One page and a Quarter... and I was trying to write slow. But then a lot of hot guys were walking out of the gym so I figured I could stop bullshitting and just watch them like a creeper.

Time well spent.

Sounds like me. Those were some LONG 15 minutes.

I've never written more than front page and half of the back but somehow yesterday I filled every line. I had about five minutes left over. I wish they would score the writing and throw out the RC score.

i did 1 page, with line breaks between my 3 paragraphs.

paragraph 1 basic intro: freelancing ftw

paragraph 2: bunch of bullshit about why freelancing is better

paragraph 3: restatement of freelancing ftw


took me about 5 minutes to read and understand wtf the prompt was saying.

spent 15 writing.

after 20 minute, went and took a piss(i drank too much agua)

then i put my head down for the last 10 minutes and tried to get in a calm state of mind until I get my diagnostic score in 1 month

Took it last October. Read the prompt and thought about it for about 2 minutes, wrote for about 10 minutes (3/4 of a page) and then just relaxed.

Sincerely hope that's a joke. We run a Q&A with deans of admissions every year, and they have always said leaving the writing portion blank or drawing a picture has always led to an instant rejection.

EDIT: Typo

On two separate years, one was Duke (Mark Hill [director of admissions, not a dean]) and one was UVA (don't remember name or position, I was a freshman).

Yeah, shitting on the writing section so obviously is about the only way you can screw the writing section up

Huh, I'm not surprised. Though I wonder how much attention they give it in general.

I wrote the whole front page and perhaps 1/3 of the reverse side. My handwriting is fairly large, though, so it was probably only 4 paragraphs of 3-4 (long) sentences each.
