MASTER LIST of Page Length by School?
« on: September 07, 2008, 01:32:27 PM »
I was wondering if someone out there had a master list of page lengths for PS's by school. Some like 2-3, some only want 2, some recommend 2-3 etc. and it's a little confusing.

Thanks guys!

If no one does, make one yourself :)

Stanford -- "of about two pages"
Columbia -- No Official limit: but recommended 2 pages
NYU -- haven't seen any specific instructions, doesn't mean they don't exist though
UChicago -- 2-3 pages
UPenn -- 2 pages, double spaced
Northwestern -- 1-3 pages, double spaced
Duke -- No official length

You should stick to 2 pages, double spaced, 1 inch margins, 12 point font. Times New Romans is best.
