<p>for the supplement essay, one is 250 words, and one is 325 words?</p>

<p>is the 325 words unaccepetable? would you reccomend cutting it down, or will it not be that much a problem</p>

<p>guys holllllarrrrr</p>

<p>no its ok , stone cold...cut it down to 300 if u can...my supp were 300 and 310</p>

<p>it's long, so it had better be good. The limits are there to keep you from going crazy. You haven't gone crazy, but yours are on the long side. You won't be rejected for a longer answer, but if there are any unneccessary sentences in it, you should remove them, and your result will be a more potent essay. That advice doesn't have to do with requirements, just with good writing.</p>

<p>I really think exceeding the word limit is just an all-around bad idea. They give you a word limit, all you have to do is follow directions. If you can't fit your ideas into their word limit, it just reflects poorly on your writing skills. Will it hurt you if you go over? Doubtfully; the above was just my rant. Carry on.</p>

<p>you can't go wrong if you obey the word limit. i picked at mine til i got it to 250, you can probably do the same.</p>

<p>I removed about 50 words from one of mine to make it exactly 250 or 249. I think following directions is important. However, based on evidence from others, it is evidently not a killer if you go over.</p>
