If a school (such as Villanova) does not specify length limit for their MSF application essays, how long is too long?

I think 750 words is a reasonably long essay. Restrict yourself to 500-800 words.

Keep it short and sweet. The goal of these essays is to convey a concise message and move on. For MSF programs, essays are a much less important aspect of the application as compared to MBA programs.

IMO, Villanova probably just forgot to include a word limit on the website or something.
