    I have just started tackling the penn supplemental application and Im unsure as to how long they want our answers. They really generally say "Although there is no maximum length to responses, please convey your thoughts adequately and in a reasonable amount of space." Anyone want to offer how long there essays were?

    I just dont want to look like an idiot and write paragraphs while everyone else is going on for a page or two.


    Additionally, whats up with that first essay? Im sure everyone made sure to mention all their dental experience on aadsas so why even ask that?

    I wrote mine last year, and all of them were generally around a page in length. Good luck with the apps.

    For that essay question, since I had already mentioned all of my dental experiences on my AADSAS application, I just took those and went into further detail about them.
