Heyy guys,
I know its kinda late but I just wanted to take your opinion on the word limit of the supplement essay....I know its 300, but all the samples I've come across on this forum and other websites go up to as much as 500 words!

Do you think 435 would be pushing it too far? :P

Also I chose the J F Kennedy prompt about public interest....I kinda wrote an essay on a person who influenced my perspective on leadersip and making a difference by inspiring others...do you think that's totally irrelevant? Or is it fine if your essay is loosely based on the chosen theme?
