I believe last year it was 1 page single spaced. My essay was about 700 words long. If you have any questions about the program, feel free to msg me. I was accepted into all 3 undergrads and ultimately chose Villanova. I absolutely love it so far. Really nice people, great campus, close to Philly, but not too close, fantastic professors, a good number of people in the program to interact with/study with and the adviser, Dr. Russo, is absolutely amazing. She's always on top of things, unlike some of the other advisers for the other undergrads, and she's incredibly friendly.
