hey all,

I'm sure its been brought up before but I was wondering about the length of personal statements. mine has been hovering right around 800 words and I didn't know if that was too short.

thanks in advance!

Take a look at AADSAS, I believe its around that many words. I think they give you about 1400 characters, if im not mistaken and that is off the top of my head.

AADSAS allows 4500 characters (which includes spaces). Just copy and paste your PS into the application and see if you have gone over.

Ha, good call, maybe Im thinking thats how many words mine was. I did use every single character for the personal statement.
