Word Limits on the Common Application

Each year we're asked about how to most effectively cut the word count of college essays down to the limits the schools assign for them. The first piece of advice we always give is to check and see if you actually have to hit that limit - in many cases, you don't, thanks to the "Upload Document" feature that's become so common on college applications.

The large majority of schools now require (or at least prefer) that you use an online application, either the Common App or the school's own application. If the school has an upload document feature instead of a text box that the essay needs to be pasted into, you can upload a file with an essay that goes over the word count. In many instances, this is to your benefit, because you can include the details that you feel are most significant to your application, without compromising the overall flow of the piece. We recommend that you not get crazy with your essay length, but if an essay is limited to, say, 500 words, it's not unreasonable to push it over 700 or even to 800 words.

Remember that the biggest priority for your college admissions essays is that it be good. Good is more important than short, and good is certainly more important than just "being done with it already." This writing is something you should put a lot of time into, and you may find that the college essay is the piece of writing you've revised most in your life. It is not uncommon to do five to ten drafts of each piece you submit. Writing can always be better! So work it as best you can and make it shine.

Early Action and Early Decision Applications

Now that you're wrapping up your early decision and early action applications, it's time to turn to the rest of the applications on your pile. Regular decision applications make up the bulk of the work required of most applicants, and in some cases can mean ten or more additional essays, not to mention the supplemental applications themselves.

The last thing you want to do is to wait until you hear back from your early application schools in mid-December to begin the rest of your work. If, unfortunately, you are denied acceptance to your top-choice schools, you'll have a substantial numer of essays and application forms to finish in only a few weeks - weeks that happen to span the Christmas and New Year's holidays.

Try to finish about 75 percent of your essays before you hear from your top-choice schools, so you're in good shape to complete your regular applications quickly and with far less stress. As always, College Essay Organizer can help you simplify and optimize the work you need to do for all your applications. Just head over to your Essay RoadMap preview and see how many essays your schools require, and how College Essay Organizer can help you make your workload much more manageable.

International Universities on College Essay Organizer

McGill UniversityIn recent years, we here at College Essay Organizer have developed our pool of international universities around our user base and the specific groups of schools our applicants have sought out. A number of them are quite popular - McGill University in Canada especially - though many of them are more targeted. We look forward to developing our international user base in the coming application seasons, not just for Americans looking to apply outside of their country, but for people outside America looking to come here.

College Essay Organizer is a great tool for counselors from countries in Europe and Asia who traditionally send a significant portion of their applicants to America. The database here can help make a confusing and overwhelming process much more efficient and direct, and the research staff at CEO digs up as many requirements as possible in places others don't necessarily know to look. It's a time-consuming job but worth doing, as it saves our thousands of users countless hours, the world over.
