I am just finishing up my supplemental essay for UF...and theres no word limit or guideline on the sheet you are suppose to paste your text to. There seems to be enough room for 2 pages of 12pt times new roman font, because I have 1 page on Word and it takes up only half of the page

Did you guys fill up the entire UF sheet or only half? I have a nice essay I think but it looks so small covering only half of the given paper. I could always submit it as a separate sheet but that just makes it more likely to get lost.

?? any views?

Mine was two pages double spaced. I didn't fill in the box.

Mine looked tiny when I copied and pasted it into the box. It wasn't even a full page in word. And it was maybe half of the text box that I pasted it into.. The font is so tiny when you print it!! Only so much can be said before you border on being redundant, verbose, or just plain boring! :p

The secondary typically comes with an interview invite (at least that is what happened with mine). I had my interview 7/28, so I will not hear anything until 12/1.

what did you guys write about for the essay? Would writing about the challenge of dentistry and how that intrigues me be wrong?

I mailed mine 7/28 from in state, and they invited me yesterday to interview on Aug 13. :eek:

I don't think that's true Matt, I think you were one of the lucky few! :p

My app was sent out 7/6 and around 7/18 I got a request for supplement and interview (for July 31st, but had to reschedule) So now I'm interviewing aug 31st. Not really sure if this helps at all!
