how do I cut 250+ words from an essay that has everything I want
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

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
