Application essay length.
What is the application essay length?
According to my TAMU application at ApplyTexas.com it reads "If you are submitting your essay online, it must be no longer than 120 eighty-character lines of text (including spaces and blank lines)."
Does this mean 120 lines of text of about 80 characters each? Also, does font, font size, and spacing (double spaced or single spaced) matter? Im typing mine single spaced in Times New Roman 12 point font. If I do it double spaced, would each space between lines count towards the line limit as a "blank line"?
But if you are submitting it by mail it reads "If you are mailing in a paper copy of your essay(s), please put your full name, date of birth and the ApplyTexas application ID at the top of each page. Unless otherwise specified, your essay should be typed and no longer than one page (8 1/2" x 11")."
What bothers me about the mailed version is that a "full page" is much less than 120 lines.
Its about 40 wen i checked!
Does spacing matter here too?
