W&M Optionals--Length?
« on: December 20, 2005, 08:01:16 PM »
Can anybody who has written a W&M optional essay please let me know what the length of your essay was?  Since I covered the essay topic given in my personal statement, I wrote about my interest in the George Wythe Society of Citizen Lawyers.  Having no idea what length they'd like to see, I crammed the essay into one page, double-spaced (slightly over 300 words).  Think this will be sufficient?  I'm just worried that if I don't write enough they won't take my interest in the program or their school seriously

I did one page for my optional.  For an optional essay, I think that's sufficient.
