Is there UT word limit? 'it must be no longer than 120 eighty-character lines of text'


answers: 9
The UT essay says
"If you are submitting your essay online , it must be no longer than 120 eighty-character lines of text (including spaces and blank lines)

How many words is this approximately? Please help !

I'm guessing they're pretty much telling you that there's practically no word limit
so you can write as much as you want
When it says that the essay must be no longer than 120 eighty-character lines of text this means that the maximum is 120 lines with 80 characters in each line as AmyRemus. But an essay with 1" on each side margin has 100 characters with no spaces typically. The college is just telling you a maximum. If you want to be safe sort of, you could just go for about 500 words for the essay.

A page in Microsoft Word, using standard formatting, weighs in at approximately 1550 characters. So, you're looking at roughly six pages, though that is a maximum. Your own essay might be considerably shorter, depending upon what you have to say.
