If I am asked to write approximately 300 words, what do you think the range is. I was thinking about a 10% leeway, so about 270-330 words. What do you guys think?

    That's a good amount, but I've heard they don't freak if you go a little over or under, just don't repeat yourself and make sure what you say can't be more concise.
