<p>I'm a rising senior, and i've got some questions about the application process.
First of all, how long in length should my essays usually be? typed or written?(obviously if i apply online, it would be typed, but should i type them if i mail in an application?)
how long should rec letters normally be? it's just for my personal info, i know that teachers would probably know how long to write them. </p>
<p>i visited university of pittsburgh & the admissions officer there said that he'd waive my application fee if i completed the main portion of the application (the personal info) on the spot. the essays, transcript, rec letters, etc would be sent in later. I was wondering how to let them know what my EC's are. there was no space on the main app to indicate my EC's and awards. should i mail in a separate resume of EC's & awards with my transcript, rec letters, & essays? if so, how do i organize it? a chart or paragraph?
i know it's a lot of questions, but please answer as many as possible.</p>
