how do I cut 250+ words from an essay that has everything I wantAnswered
my common app essay needs to be 650 words but I found myself hitting over 1,000, after doing some preliminary cuts I still find myself with 873 words but every single one is needed in my eyes. How do I cut the right things in order to meet the word limit but also portray my story interestingly and effectively? thanks
Earn karma by helping others:
Sometimes it's useful to put your essay through the Peer Review.
You need some karma points for that.
I would put it through 2 times or more and see what other people think.
