i think you can just get your answers in...
i was really concerned with it.. so i wrote it in word... so that it was 25 lines, and then when i cut and paste it into the online box it went over 25. So then i edited it there down to 25. And then in print preview, it changed again.. and then when you actually print it out , it goes down to 19 lines. So i went by that final printed out version and used that as my max.
When i called in to loyola to ask about that, the lady said.. just answer the question completely, and seemed to imply not to worry about the lines so much.
i think loyola's the type of school that wouldn't be so concerned with space restraints... i think they want to know more of what your answer is rather than how concise it is?
so personally, i think 25 lines only pertains to the printed out version, and i don't think they really care that much.
