long essay submitted?

<p>I applied ED and have submitted everything. but my essay on common app was a lil more than 700 words. is this bad?
What do I do?
I'm gonna apply RD to other schools, should I somehow make changes?


<p>It should be fine as long as every word counts and you edited as much as possible. The essay 500 word count is more of a guideline than a limit.</p>

<p>It's not a big deal- edit it down for your RD schools if you can, but as long as it fits on a page the vast majority of colleges won't have a problem with it.</p>

<p>thank you!!!!</p>
