3700 word essay?

<p>...My "Why Penn" essay is 3700 words!</p>

<p>what do you tlak about?</p>

<p>holy christ.</p>

<p>thats either a really bad thing... or a really good thing showing your enthusiasm. Mine was only 700....</p>

<p>I didnt think i could write that much...but i started and all these ideas just came to me. Its crazy. I have to cut out like 4 pages now.</p>

<p>what do you talk about for so long</p>

<p>Everything basically...the campus, the extracurricular stuff im interested in, the classes.</p>

<p>Im applying to wharton so I talk a lot about why i want to go into business and why wharton is the best undergrad school for me</p>

<p>should i focus on only one or two things about Penn...because i really like everything and want to show the adcom my enthusiasm for the school...but then again i dont want them to not read it cause its so long.</p>

<p>what did you guys write about?</p>

<p>You are supposed to write a 300-500 word essay! Sorry, but nobody will every read a 3,700 page essay, no matter how much you like Penn. </p>

<p>If you want to get into the college, cut it down to a page or two. I'm pretty sure they'll stop reading after that. That many words will not help your chances, but will more likely hurt them.</p>
