the first essay asks for like 5300 characters, or about a page. i've written about 4000 and i have over a page and a half, single spaced, times new roman. 5300 characters is almost 2 pages single spaced! for the vision essay, it says like 3300 or about 1/2 page. but 3300 is about an entire page with the same fonts as i mentioned before. what's up with that? are we expected to write close to the max characters?-because that's a lot to read for them!
