Is it bad if an essay is well below the word limit?

<p>Just finished a supplement and I'm really happy with it. I feel like I said everything I wanted to say. But it's only about 3000 characters and the supplement has a 5000 character limit. Is it bad that I'm so much below this?</p>

<p>Well, if you'd said everything you wanted to say, it should be fine... have you shown this essay to others and asked whether or not necessary background information is missing?</p>
