I know this question has been posted many times but this one is having a different flavor.
MIT Sloan requires a Cover Letter. This is what the website says
"Prepare a cover letter (up to 500 words) seeking a place in the MIT Sloan MBA Program. Please comment on your career goals and those factors which influenced you to pursue an MBA education at MIT Sloan. The cover letter provides a chance for you to discuss your passions, values, and interests. Through what you write we hope to discover whether you will thrive at MIT Sloan and how you will contribute to our diverse community. Address your cover letter to Mr. Rod Garcia, Director of MBA Admissions."
Because this is a formal letter and you need to add some extra lines to make it formal. So my question is how wise it is to go about 150 words above the limit? My all other essays are within the limits.
