Optional Introduce Yourself Essay Length

<p>Hi everyone, how long is too long for this essay? It's supposed to be approximately 150 words, but I have more than that.. Any ideas would be helpful :)</p>

<p>+-10%, so 135-165 is really where you should target. There are already threads about this, but basically, in an essay where there is such a specific and tiny amount of words allotted, I think it is in your best interests to respect their directions and wishes. </p>

<p>It's easy to make the essay crisper and cut out words by rephrasing, using contractions, etc. The idea is that they want to see if you can write concisely. They also want to know what your focus would be in such a tiny space. </p>

<p>You can go over, but you have to decide if it's worth it.</p>

<p>would you mind reading over my essay?</p>

<p>^ I guess. I'm procrastinating doing some homework, and that'd be a great excuse.</p>

<p>i sent it, thankss</p>
