Help! Length's of Essay's!!

<p>Guys, how long are your essays in the personal statment? Specifically, the "academic areas that interest you most and your reasons for applying to Brown" and the who interested you in Brown? </p>

<p>Also, how'd you guys go about answering the activity response? Essay or list?</p>

<p>I was wondering the same thing about the activities. On the paper app, there's a lined section just like the personal statement.</p>

<p>I think the academic areas one is supposed to be around 250 words? It says on the website.</p>

<p>I'm going to do an essay for my activities. I'm doing it online and the essays have 3500 character limits. eugh</p>

<p>I have like three mini essays for the activities part, and they fill the entire page on the paper application. From what I've heard, though, they're pretty flexible.</p>

<p>that's what brown's known for =)</p>

<p>do you guys think a personal statment can be too poetic? i'm really scared that i didnt' really answer the question directly.
what are you guys' statment about?</p>
