putting "&"instead of "and "on college applications? Common application: 1000 charact

<p>I need to cut a few words....should I turn all my "and"s into "&"s?</p>

<p>no.</p>

<p>10char</p>

<p>It's much better not to. Try to find a couple extraneous words to delete or pick shorter synonyms.</p>

<p>Fine for texts, very bad idea for college applications.</p>
