    Trivial question but I'm not sure what to do about it. Did you guys single or double space it? It says two pages, so may I just single space it all?? I have a lot to say. :D

    I single-spaced my two-page essay on the state of artificial intelligence research.

    I think that was actually the most fun essay I got to write....

    hey, thanks for the quick reply. I wonder what the others are doing.

    My essay is not as unique as yours..or perhaps it is. Oh well, we'll find out. :D

    I single spaced mine - 2 pages about - wrote about my english lit minor and how I like Chaucer and the Canterbury Tales. Last year I wrote about football and the Miami Dolphins. Needless to say, it did not impress them I suppose.

    I guess my friend who is also applying to CWRU is not writing a unique essay afterall since you are writing about the same thing.

    I did a page and a quarter single spaced about soccer in the United States and how I've been involved with the sport my whole life. BTW, 2 pages is the limit, I don't think it implies that you need to write an entire 2 pages. In fact, I bet they'd appreciate a few shorter essays here and there that are clear and to the point. :)

    ok, another CWRU question:

    The envelope that came to my house was post marked Aug 14, and they have said to return it within two weeks after receipt. I know i did not receive it on Aug 14, b/c that's when it was post marked. So, now 2 weeks after Aug 14th is the DAY AFTER TOMORROW. :( :mad: And I am not ready with my essay yet. Do you think they care if it's a day or two late??? I could just try and finish the essay tonight (which is not yet polished) and have it expressed FEDEX tomorrow a.m. I just don't wanna waste the 10 bucks. :(
    What do you say?

    I think this came up before, and the answer was that they recommend that you return it quickly. The absolute deadline should be listed somewhere on there.

    i single spaced it; i'm one of those people that tends to write a lot and end up having to cut back on things so there was no way i could double space.... i wrote about education and my ed. minor, the other big love of my life besides medicine...
