I'm a little embarrassed to ask this with my first R1 deadline next week, but do you title your essays? Max length is 2 pages double spaced, so this isn't a 5 pager...

thoughts?

On mine I put "Essay 1 - [Question]" as a header. I've heard some people say they just put "Essay 1." I'm not sure you have to title your essays (as in come up with a title) but I would label them in beginning.

Its totally your choice I guess. I did add titles for one essay - kind of like the tag titles that Fraiser episodes have.

I was wondering this same thing myself today. I think adding labels of "Essay 1," etc, could only help.

I only list the essay # and question at the top of all my essays -- perhaps a witty title would work for a personal story essay, but that's not my style. I did use section titles on one essay that had a tight word limit and basically asked several different questions.
