    I expect that Princeton would show a little leniency given the circumstances.

    Hi @JLeto, where did you see that the recommendation is 5 pages and 1,000 words? I only saw that "one or two pages is sufficient" from the FAQ page. I was just wondering because I'm applying RD and I'm not sure how long my paper should be. Thank you!

    @lemonlime13 I guess they updated it since the last time I looked. Either that or I just imagined it, but anyway, just trust what their site says now.

    @lemonlime13 I also remember what @Jleto18 said, ~5 pages and ~1000 words recommended. Mine is around 1000 words so I thought it was a good option (and tbh it's the only option I have) but idk I think they actually changed their website in the last few weeks and I'm little worried now. By "one to two pages is sufficient" do they mean the paper has to be between 1-2 pages? or that they're only gonna read 1-2 pages so don't bother sending like a 10-page essay? am I still allowed to send my 6-page essay? (it's slightly over 1000 words)

    Also do we need to include the title/prompt of the paper?

    @geekgurl I think your essay should be fine- the 1-2 page thing is just "sufficient," not a recommendation, and they specifically say there's no word limit. I'm also considering sending in a ~1000 word essay, as I think it's a better representation of my writing ability. The worst they can do is stop reading after the first 2 pages!

    Not sure about the title/prompt though...I would say include the title and not the prompt, but that's just my opinion

    Quick urgent question, please help:
    I'm submitting a history graded essay, and it's a document-based analysis. Should I attach the instructions and the documents my essays are based on? They take up like 3 pages, and my essay takes up 4-5 pages. Is that reasonable? Look luck everyone!

    No. And in the future, start a new thread with questions. Hijacking violates the forum rules and is rude to the original poster.
