My essay was turned in incomplete
Okay so it's the night my application is due and I finally finished my essay. But the word count is 800 words and my essay ended up being 1400 words so I had some serious trimming to do. I'm frantically deleting words until I reach the word count. So I proofread my essay one last time and I turn it in. I read my essay 1 week later and I notice it ends in a cliffhanger. I'm applying to art school so I was gonna end it by saying how art is an influential aspect in my life. But my essay ends like this " I wouldn't be myself if I couldn't express myself in the." I was pretty confident that I had a shot of getting accepted but now I'm not so sure. I turned in everything else perfectly however like my common app, my portfolio, my transcript. Can this greatly affect my chances or is this something that can be looked over?4 replies
