Essay length?

<p>Does anyone have a general idea of how long our essays are supposed to be? For both the short essay and the teo regular essays?</p>

<p>the regular essays should be "about a page"</p>

<p>A page double spaced or normal spaced?</p>

<p>Also font 12?</p>

<p>lol. I am just making sure and thus asking.</p>

<p>500 words is what I've heard and seen a few colleges write.</p>

<p>they said normal spaced and 12 font times new roman</p>

<p>Does anyone know what our short essay about an EC is supposed to look like? Is it supposed to fill up the whole space typed? I don't want to push the envelope.</p>

<p>the adcom I talked to said they really want it handwritten, that's why you have to use the "space provided"</p>

<p>Hmm, then I'm going to have to get some legible handwriting (and fast).</p>

<p>yea georgetown likes things a bit old school</p>

<p>no joke (see: no online app!)</p>

<p>Regular essay: 1 page, single spaced, 10-12 pt font, fiddle around with the margins at your own risk.</p>

<p>Short essay: As long as it fits in the space provided by the PDF, and it's readable. (Meaning, the text should not shrink to a 4 pt font by the time you're done writing your essay.)</p>

<p>How does one type the essay on the application, when the application does not allow?</p>

<p>You can type on the application, you just can't save it.</p>

<p>How do you type on the PDF file? It's not allowing me to do that</p>

<p>Try a different browser - I remember it doesn't work under one of the browsers my daughter was trying. Also pop up blockers need to be off.</p>
