People have already applied to Yale?
Someday, I will write a passable 250 and will apply. Someday...
I submitted in late November - I figured Yale would be a Hail Mary for me any way I cut it, so I might as well end the pain early. I was lucky to have just written a short essay for a friend's newspaper about life in my city that I could edit down to 250 words. If not going over the word limit is the primary indicator of quality, I killed it and will be your next Supreme Court justice. If, for some reason, the content of the essay matters too... I even didn't like Connecticut anyway.
