supplemental essay format?

<p>this might be a stupid question but what is the format for the supplemental essay? even if there's only one supplemental essay do we have to include the question in the word document?</p>

<p>e.g. this is carnegie mellon's supplement: </p>

<p>Please submit a one-page, single-spaced essay that explains why you have chosen Carnegie Mellon and your particular major(s), department(s) or program(s). This essay should include the reasons why you've chosen the major(s), any goals or relevant work plans and any other information you would like us to know. If you are applying to more than one college or program, please mention each college or program you are applying to. Because our admission committees review applicants by college and programs, your essay can impact our final decision. Please do not exceed one page for this essay.</p>

<p>but just that by itself would take up about 1/6 of the page. does that count?</p>
