Essay Limits [#permalink] New post 04 Jan 2012, 12:07
Hello,

The application states essays is to be XXX words or X pages. Words such as "no more than" nor "fewer than" are used. Which dictates?

When I follow the margin, spacing, and font guidelines, I am over the word limit but still within the page requirement. It seems like a silly question to bother adcom with but I also don't want to get hit for not following directions.

If subjective, is the interpretation up to the reader?

Thanks

You should follow both constraints.. make sure you follow the formatting guidelines and interpret the word limit as the maximum to be on the safe side.
