Additional Information - Page Limit

edited October 2010 in College Admissions
So, I have just clicked upload for my additional information, and have discovered that it truncated and only took 1 page. I have 2 pages, 1 being a resume/synopsis of activities I needed to go more in depth into, and 1 being an abstract to a research paper.

So does it automatically only take 1 page as an upload? Or is there a certain way it determines how much to upload? I'd prefer not to send the research stuff separately by mail to each college I apply to as I have a ton, worst case I guess I'd massively shorten the resume to get both to fit. But right now it's as concise as it can be without skipping anything important and needed on there, so preference to it all going in :D. Is there other alternatives, like changing font size - how small is too small in that case?

    Uh, they should be able to read it so 11 font min.

    I really think that you're overdoing it. Most adcoms aren't going to want to go through your entire application plus two additional documents. Worst case scenario - they won't even read it.

    Goodness gracious, turns out it was the wrong file. It accepts it all :D.
    That's fine with me haha. They want the research stuff to be submitted with it though. And the majority of some of my activities - awards and such - don't fit at all, hence the resume. But if they don't want to read it, no difference to me!
