MASTER LIST of Page Length by School?

MASTER LIST of Page Length by School?
« on: September 07, 2008, 11:32:27 AM »
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 :)

I have a list for the schools i'm (considering) applying to, so I'll post below, but beyond that, others will have to supply the info. Hope this helps

Yale -- haven't seen any specific instructions, doesn't mean they don't exist though
Harvard -- 2 pages, 11 pt font double space (for last 07-08 cycle -- this yrs app is not yet available)
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
Gtown - No official length
UC Berkley -- Up to 4 pages
UMich -- Up to you (but double spaced and 11 pt font)

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