    How much did you write? You really only have those 4 or 5 lines on the Supplement sheet for each question . . .

    I wrote fairly substantial paragraphs for each question. I'm guessing it's okay since they said on the application that we could use separate sheets of paper if necessary.

    They are soo confusing..its liek if they give u the option to write on another piece of paper then do they want long answers or do they want short answers?..this is not just barnard but all the schools..

    mine was around 100 words per answer, though I think I covered everything I wanted in my answers and that's what is really important.
