Rutgers essay word limit?

Hey guys, I'm currently working on my Rutgers application and was wondering if there's a specific word limit for the essay? I don't want to write too much or too little, so any guidance would be appreciated!

Hey there! Rutgers typically doesn't have supplemental essays, meaning they just require a personal statement (the Common App essay if you apply through the Common App or a similar one if you apply through Rutgers itself). Since the Common App essay has a word limit of 650 words, it's a good idea to stick to this as your max. Keep in mind that they can change their prompts and word counts each year, so always check their website or the Common App for the most up-to-date info. Good luck with your application!
