Oops ... Application Essay Snafu: I Wrote 500 Characters, Not 500 Words
Question: I have all of the requirements to get into Boston University but I mistakenly messed up my application that I already sent. I just realized that one of the supplemental essays was to be no more than 500 words but I read it as 500 CHARACTERS. Thus, my essay is only 75 words in length. This is my top choice school and I am very concerned that this will greatly hinder my chances of getting in. Please give your honest opinion on what you think my fate will be. Do you think it will matter that much to the point where they will not accept me? Thank you.
