OK, this may be a dumb question but is there an unspoken rule about using the space provided (of course I am talking about those prompts that do not specify a character limit nor using a separate piece of paper)? Unless they tell me otherwise, and want a "descriptive" essay in one paragraph, I'm inclined to just write it on a separate piece of paper and attatch it. You think they care, as long as it isn't a book?

Probably not a big deal, but you never know. If I were you, I'd just limit my response to the space given. But that's just me.

Unless it says you can, don't take up extra space. There's probably a reason that schools limit the space you have to answer. Most get thousands of apps and don't have time to read pages upon pages of essays. Keep it short and to the point.

I attached additional pieces of paper a couple of times. I don't think it is a big deal. Just don't write too much.
