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
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.
