Teacher recommendation cut off

I have a question. I found that my teacher's recommendation has 750 words, and more than 3800 characters. My teacher says me that in the text box he can write only the first 2000 letters, but if he attach a doc file he can view it in the preview pdf format the entire recommendation, without any cut off.

If my teacher will upload the entire recommendation as a document with all 3500 letters will it be cut off?(but in the preview format is not cut off)

    Bump, I'm interested in knowing this too. Can teachers go over their 2000 character limit if they upload the file?

    There is no word or character limit on an upload. The only limit is a 500KB file size.

    The character limit only applies to the text boxes. I'd say use the upload option instead, since you can write much more if you'd like to without risking anything.
