My estimate using Times New Roman, 12 pt, Double spaced and 1" Margin around is 1875 words. (Sorry about the earlier figure)

This could be pretty important. Could others pls. plug in the figures they see.

And if possible, info about their margins!

so 0.7" on each side, 8.5 - 1.4 = 7.1 inches of the width.

Submitted!!! Kinda nervous, but kinda relieved... spent probably 10 hours in the past two days reading and re-reading the darn application, and finding bad word choices here and there. Finally had to just tell myself to submit.

Ok, let's keep track of the submits.

Don't forget to log your candidacy here!

There are only 145 characters for Education gap explanation. How about writing "please refer addtional information essay' in this space and then actually explaning the gap in the additional essay??

Kry, I'll bet you a 100 bucks any day that your essays will be the most 'polished' among us GMATClub-ers. So, rest easy :-)
Btw, congratulations on submitting. All the best!

Thanks KK! I think my essays are far from the most polished on this site. I'm pretty sure there are quite a few gmatclubbers who have much stronger essays then I. At least they're not all applying to my top 3 schools! ;)

sango: there's a section for awards and honors... did you not find it?

just: click "proceed to submission" and you'll see the payment page. don't worry, they'll make you do a "digital signature" before you submit.

Total Length [#permalink] New post 21 Oct 2007, 12:22
Y'all,

To check your total length did you just paste all the essays into one document? I see that we upload the essays separately, but I'm assuming we count the total pages as if they were combined.

Anyone able to confirm this? My essay lengths are as follows:

A: 2 1/2
B: 2
C3: 1 1/4
C4: 1 1/4

Total: 7 if on same document, but 9 if they're uploaded separately b/c of teh 1/2 and 1/4 pages.
