    I have to send it out today, so if anyone cares to give a quick read.....

    Several of you gave me edits on my various drafts and it may have changed dramatically since you read it. I tried to incorporate what you each said as much as possible but then i had to edit much of it out due to the limited character count.

    Does Microsoft Word count hard returns in their word/character count or do i have to add that to their count?

    As it is now, it's 5,297 characters. :scared:

    Anyone who can give a quick read please e-mail me at [e-mail address removed by Phil Anthropist by request]

    And thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all your help. Sorry for being such a pain about it. :oops:

      Psycho, try to to paste in 5,297 characters into AMCAS and use the "Print" functon. I wasn't able to do it. Most people have this problem. It cuts out like a hundred characters. Also, if you want to have your paragraphs separated, you might want to use double spaces between them which takes away even more characters. Just try everything with AMCAS, it's annoying but you will have a better idea on how long it really must be.

        Is there anyone here who professionally reads essays or who has read a lot of them who can tell me if mine at least stands a chance? Anyone who hasn't read mine yet who knows wha tmakes an essay seem good to an adcom? Sorry, I know i'm being pathetic, but don't worry, it's almost over, then you won;t have to listen to me about this any more. :oops:

          I've read a lot of nonfiction essays and I think I'm a good writer. However, you know I am also harsh and honest. If you want me to read it, I will do so. PM me.
