Hi guys,

For those invited to complete a supplemental application, how long did your essay end up being? There's no character limit as I assume you've all noticed. I realize the obvious answer is however long it takes to get the point across, but something more substantial than that would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hello,
Congratulations on receiving a supplemental application! I ended up writing approximately 2,500 characters total.

I think there was a character limit of 4500 if I remember correctly. I believe if you however over or click the question mark beside the box you input your answer

4500 is indeed the character limit. I found this out whe i copy-pasted my answer into the box and everything past 4500 char was cut off. Then I went back and shortened it to fit. I ended up getting an interview from ICO so I hope that helps.

Hey tubatu111. How long did it take you to receive a supplemental invite and what were your stats if you don't mind sharing. I'm still waiting to hear from ICO!
