Supplemental Essays-how many schools want them?

Supplemental Essays-how many schools want them?
« on: January 02, 2006, 11:27:11 PM »
I'm applying to about 6-8 schools, of all of them, only one wanted a supplemental essay (besides the PS), and that was Pepperdine.

If anyone has this one, or any other one similar to it (it's an answer to their mission statement, pretty much about upholding their Christian morals and values), how long did you make it?  I'm thinking I'll try to attempt a page, but it may be a bit longer, it's a tough decision without them telling you a legnth, and because they have so little time, and this just takes away from the total time that they will spend looking over the whole application.

I have a feeling that some people may try and either skip this, or add it in their PS (I almost did because it would have been easy), but they make it fairly clear that it should be a seperate paper.

If it helps I submitted a PS and DS to every school I applied to whether they requested the DS or not.
