I have been working on the second HMC supplemental essay, and was wondering how many words did you guys get on that essay? The prompts says 250-1000 words but I got 587, is that too little?
PS the essay topic is:
In addition to the Common Application essay, choose any one of the essay topics below. The essay should be 250 words minimum, 1000 words maximum.
1. What is one thing we won't know about you after reading your application that you haven't already reported in the Common Application "Additional Information" section?
2. Describe an experience that sparked your interest in mathematics, science or engineering.
3. In a world where technology continually adapts and progresses, Harvey Mudd College expects that our students will be aware of the impact of their work on society. How would you use new advances to improve your life and/or the lives of those around you? Describe your idea and its potential impact. Feel free to be as creative or as practical as you like.
