How long should the AWA typically be? I write about 3-4 short paragraphs.
Also, does anyone have a good template?

General consensus is 500+ words. It has a psychological effect if your essay looks long since your arguments will seem more developed.

Heh, I did exactly the same - added Chinesburned's post in my bookmarks. I've deleted it just recently.
