Common app essay word limit

<p>Any input will be greatly appreciated. Does duke care if my common app essay is 750 words instead of the indicated 500? I know some schools don't care but some do.
Thanks guys!</p>

<p>I got in with a two page double spaced essay that was 600 words. I thinknit would be best for you to revise it down a bit.</p>

<p>Alright. Thanks a lot.</p>

<p>Mine was 958 and I was accepted, so I don't think you need to worry :)</p>

<p>750 words is fine</p>
