On the secondaries are you guys just writing only in the alloted space they give you or are you going over by adding additional sheets. Like for Creighton, they give you only 5 or 6 lines to write. Did you guys use additional sheets?
you should write as much as you feel fit. Remember, schools do not have all the time in the world to read your "essays" or hear that you wanted to go to their school since the day you were born. Some schools will only give you enough space to write a couple of sentences, other schools will allow you to use additional space (IF NEEDED).
