Harvard PS word limit?

Post by mountwhite » Fri Dec 14, 2018 1:56 am

Hi everyone, so I only recently realized that HLS has a lower page limit than pretty much every other top school. Harvard asks that applicants limit their essays to two pages, whereas most others say around two pages or even 2-4 pages. My essay is around 2.5 pages. Is it absolutely necessary to cut down to two for harvard?

Yes. Two pages is the ideal PS length to begin with, but get used to complying with arbitrary word/page limits on your work.
