For some reason I had a hard time when I had to cut and paste for my USC secondary. I figured out latter that if you are over the word count when you paste into the text box and then try to go to the next page it will read as an error. I don't really understand this because when I typed my response in Word and checked the word count it should have fit. But after many hours of frustration, I just typed the responses directly into the text boxes. I also did something really stupid. USC was one of the first secondaries I received and I wanted to view all the questions - so instead of going to the worksheet - (which in hindsight would have been alot eaiser) I skipped through each page of the application, but in order to do that you must type a response in some of the boxes. So, I don't know if this created a problem or not when I tried to cut and paste into the boxes. Well anyway, good luck.
