Does anyone know about college admission essays? (Ohio state University)?

QUESTION
Does anyone know about college admission essays? (Ohio state University)?
I am applying for Ohio State University and i typed a 400 word essay and there is a limit to 250.. will i be penalized for this?

ANSWER
Ohh, college applications, ew. I finished all mine last month, yay. 😀

You won’t be penalized, but you should really try to stick to the suggested amount of words. A few over isnt bad, 150 over is kind of a lot. Take out the extra stuff, see if you maybe stated some things twice.

Some college applications will only let you have 250 when you type them in, they have a character count and wont let you go over.

But 250 sounds like the short answer questions, try to stick to short but still be detailed and answer the question. They have longer essays when they want longer answers.
At least thats how the University of Michigan application was. (;o we could be rivals, lmao)
