ergh! It's not letting me go back into the website to look. I only knew the questions cause I had a copy saved into word... Most of my answers are between 400-500 words though. Sorry I can't be much more help. Hopefully, someone else has access to theirs.
If I'm not mistaken... The limit is kinda fuzzy... Like 500 words; but it will not complain if you go over and it does not _seem_ to truncate the essays past said limit. So the thick and the short of it would be try to get it in about 500 words-- I had a few essays that went over (like 50 ish words)... If I'm not mistaken...
