Even if your plans are not firm, throwing out some ideas will help us develop a sense of how we can guide you and allow us to begin considering you for certain opportunities. Avoid telling us about how you’ve wanted to be a novelist since you were three years old (which many applicants actually do).
It also counts how many characters you’ve used, so it’s easy to see when you’re close to the 4,000 character limit.
But be warned – it doesn’t save your work, so it’s important you copy, paste, and save your work regularly into a word processing document.
So, avoid mentioning any universities or colleges by name.
If you’ve chosen similar subjects, talk about the subject in general, and try not to mention courses titles.
