I know they say about a page but I've tried everything to cut it down and I just think everything left is worthwhile.

(It's the unique perspective/life experience one)


From Michigan's application form: "Each essay should be about one page."

If you're going the exceed one page, the additional content should be ABSOLUTELY necessary.

My Why essay was 1 page even with 1.5 spacing, 12 pt font, or 1.5 pages double spaced. Didn't hinder my application at all. I wouldn't sweat it too hard, focus more on the content

I'm above both 75th percentiles at Michigan and Duke, I submitted Duke on 8/25 and Michigan on 9/1 and haven't heard back from either. I have a friend who's in the same boat and he withdrew both apps last week.

Which, from Michigan and Duke's perspectives, makes a lot of sense. The schools are guilty of playing the game to some extent, but can you blame them when students are just as Machiavellian?

Anyone else get an "out of the blue" scholly increase today? Not complaining at all, but this seemed, well, odd all things considered.
