I can't tell if I am writing too little or too much.

On my Microsoft Word, Font Calibri, Size 11, I type approximately 400 words per essay. This is about a 3/4 of a full page of writing (typed on computer I guess).

I know that the MCAT essay graders spent about ONE MINUTE ONLY on these essay so I feel that this is a good length.

But what say YOU?

longer the better as long as it's clear coherent nonrepetitive and within 30 minutes

I don't think they have to be particularly long (mine were not). Make sure you cover the objectives of the WS. I spent about 15 minutes per essay last year and I got an R on test day. I wrote out two fairly basic essays of 3-4 paragraphs and that was it.

I smashed mine out and got an R. Probably 25-30 sentences is a good target.
