Princeton Graded Essay
For the graded essay, my word count is 1,857 words (almost over double the word count of 1,000), however, it can fit on 5 pages if I use 11.5 font. It's MLA format, Times New Roman, Double-Spaced with the only exception being the 11.5 font instead of 12. If I use 12 font, it goes over by one line onto a 6th page. Should I use 11.5 font, or will AOs count off for that? Also, how am I supposed to upload the paper with comments if my teacher only graded it as a physical copy? Do I have to send my teacher the file of my paper and have them digitally make comments? Sorry, I can't find anything about it on Princeton's page.25 replies
