A “duh” tip #2

Following the October 21 blog post titled, “A ‘duh’ tip #1,” let me remind you of another “duh” tip.

Someone recently reached AdmitSpit by searching for “can we go over 1000 words for personal statements?”

No! If the application says you get 1000 words for your essays, you only get 1000 words. I presume by the way that the Web surfer here was referring to the UC application, but regardless of what school you are applying to, do not exceed the limits they set! If however the application says “about 1000 words,” well then, I guess they’re allowing you some space to add on a bit.

Just make sure you’re aware of what the application directions are!
