How much over the limit of 150 words can you be? 150 words is short.

    Well it really used to be that as long as it fits in the space provided it would be fine, though I hear that the common app doesn't have a space so I think that the word limit might be a bit more strict, so yeah I would suggest not going too much over the limit.

    And yes the limit is short, but sticking to the limit proves that you a concise writer, so yeah...
