Is the Northwestern essay really supposed to be that long?
All my other schools gave a word limit for the "Why this college" essay. Tufts was 50-100 words and most were around 250-500 words. When I googled how long is should be though I got a lot of answers with people saying they wrote 600-800 words... what??? Does it really need to be that long?5 replies
