    I was curious how long everybody's writing sample is. I have only been writing 3 paragraphs... 5 - 6 sentences per paragraph.. I just have no way to gauge it. Thanks.

    anyone? I know you guys are taking practice tests.. i'm just looking for like 1 or 2 responses because I don't have my writing samples graded, so i could be doing "J" essays and I have no idea... Thanks.

    If you go on e-MCAT.com, they have writing samples with grades. It looks like there are good grades on 3-5Paragraph essays. I got an O on the real thing, & did the basic 3 paragraph thing. I don't really think the number of paragraphs matter, as long as you answer the questions & have a cohesive essay, with good examples/thoughts. But definitely check out that those practice ones to guide you if you're worried.
