So is the rule a rule, or more of a guideline? I'm terrified Dean Z's going to see my extra essay and be like "pssh, this self-absorbed moron's failed to read the directions, which say 'two supplementary essays' pretty damn clearly."
2 supplemental essays required? On the app it says:
If you wish, write one or two essays (but no more) on the following topics. Each essay should be about one page. (If applying electronically, use an electronic attachment.)
