Supplemental Essay Question

<p>Hey, everyone! I realize that this question was asked a while ago, so I don’t mean to be repetitive, but I was wondering if any info or anything about this had changed.</p>

<p>So: Is the supplemental essay one to two pages single- or double-spaced? Those of you who sent them in already, which did you do?</p>

<p>I tried calling Bowdoin today, but got an answering machine with a message that the woman answering phones would be back tomorrow.</p>

<p>Thanks so much! Sorry again to be repetitive; I am just wondering what you guys did.</p>

<p>All I can tell you is that my essay was 531 words - it should be at least 450 in my opinion. As long as you convey your ideas as eloquently and concisely as possible, the essay will be fine. :)</p>

<p>lol mine was like... just over 300 words. it was very simple and concise, but i think i portrayed myself very accurately. w/e you feel that you need to show your true self i guess. i am a girl of few words, so thats just how i am....</p>

My essay was about 650 words. I was accepted ED, so I guess it was satisfactory. I wrote about my love of tea and how it represents a time of balance and enjoyment in my busy life. Weird,!</p>

<p>Thanks you guys! You were really helpful. I think mine ended up being about 470 words? Something like that. Thanks again for all the help!</p>

<p>mollyollygal, that is neat that you wrote about tea; I am also a big fan of it :)</p>

<p>I wrote a letter to my future roommate...on actual stationary paper, in an envelope. Lame, but that's me. It's exactly how I would've went about it if I were writing to my roommate...</p>
