does anyone know how strict adcoms are about word limits, when they ask u to attach the secondary essay responses on a separate piece of paper? i.e. technically you can write more than what they suggest because there's no text box stopping you. i'm asking because i'm working on the UIC secondary, and for a 250 word essay, ive managed to cut my response down from 450 to 300, and i really am having a hard time cutting it more. will this be a problem?
