95 words over the limit on Common App... I need some serious advice

<p>Well, I've made probably three or four major edits to my entire draft since I first wrote it, and no matter how hard I try I can't seem to cut anything or shorten it without feeling like I lose important detail. </p>

<p>I've read elsewhere that 500 words is highly suggested but they most likely won't throw you application in the trash if it's over, and 95 words to me doesn't seem like a lot when reading my essay. </p>

<p>I would appreciate some advice, because I really think everything I have is entirely necessary.</p>

<p>i can read it and let you know if you want to PM it to me</p>
