haha mine too - one of my schools limits it to one page... I don't know what to do

I know what you mean. When I tried to rework my statement for GW it felt hollow...so I called their admission's office and asked if I could send in my statements as is without being knocked for the word count. I was told that as long as it was within a two page limit I would be fine. I sent them in but am not really counting on a GW acceptance...I guess if that school happens to be a safety you could maybe do the same.

Mine was a page, as well.
Guess what? I have flaws. What are they? Oh I donno, I sing in the shower? Sometimes I spend too much time volunteering. Occasionally I'll hit somebody with my car. So sue me-- no, don't sue me. That is opposite the point I'm trying to make.

[/quote]I was actually thinking about submitting it for a super reach school so I'm at a loss as to what to do.

I see. Well, try the phone call route and see what they suggest. What can it hurt?

Two pages, and it made no difference to my application process.  In fact, I think it helped more than it hurt.  But it better be good.
J, if you didn't bring enough penis for everyone, you shouldn't have brought any penis at all.
