Short Essay

Hi there! I'm currently working on my early decision application and I've gotten to the essay section. The short essay prompt works really well with a longer essay that I wrote and the application allows me to paste the entire piece into the essay box. Is 500 words too long for a short essay? They say "in the space available", but there doesn't seem to be a word limit attached.
