I'm currently writing my essays and I've noticed that I tend to be extremely verbose, and often write to the maximum length or past it by about 10-20 words. For example, in Exeter's essays, they ask applicants for two essays that are about 200-500 words in length but the first essay I wrote is 463 words and the second is exactly 500 words in length, would this be acceptable to submit or should I attempt to sacrifice some of what I have written to better meet the guidelines that they have set in place? If I should shorten the length of my essays, how would you suggest that I do so as I have read my essay through several times and am still unsure of where I'd be able to shorten the length of the essay.10 replies
