Maximum Word Limit Really High?
I am applying to transfer for the fall of 2019. I was getting geared up to submit an application tonight after some final edits but was told I may want to match the word limit a bit more. The problem is, I have 500 and the word limit is 1500. That's a huge limit, and I'm afraid if I try to fill that it will become filler and fluff. The prompts aren't even that specific either? They're "Why do you want to attend our school?" and "Why have you chosen this major?" Should I try to beef them up? I also though admissions counselors would prefer not to read a bunch of fluff since this is what they do all day every day and something concise may be better.2 replies
