+/- what is your word count in Kellogg's essays (long-ones)?

I googled that 2 pages double-spaced should be approx. 1000 words, but it sounds too much. I have drafted 1/2 page and (with double-spacing) it takes 150 words... what would mean that 2 pages are approx. 600 words. Does it make sense?

Last year most of us had around 900 or so. You have to us a smaller font 10pt to 11pt arial or 11pt times new roman. Margins should be squeezed on the sides...I used 1" all around some people went down to 3/4" on the sides (top and bottom keep at 1"). A few people made spacing like 1.9 instead of double.

Kellogg Class of 2010...still active and willing to help. However, I do not do profile reviews, don't offer predictions on chances and am far to busy to review essays, so save the energy of writing me a PM seeking help for these. If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond.
