Hey does anyone have an idea of how much is too much when writing the Stanford essays.
Going by Wharton and Chicago (which have 1500-500 words limits)
I was assuming i shouldnt write more than 2000 words for the stanford essay cause it will get too long
the only problem is there are basically two question, and its hard to know whether they like brevity or (as they often say) are trying to truly know the candidate.
Do help if you guys can
They truly would like to get to know you, so most applicants' essays are on the longer side. Most probably fall between 1200 and 2000 words. Over 2500 in a single essay is probably too much. _________________
When I went to the Stanford info session this question came up and the director of admissions basically said limit your essay to about 8-10 pages double spaced w/ 12 point font. Don't know how many words that is but that is what I remember her saying. _________________
