on the app it asks for all your awards, honors, etc. but then it says, "MAX 250 words". do they really want 250 words descibing a few awards or is that just a maximum and there is no minimum?

If they say "maximum 250 words" then yes, they only want at most 250 words - if you only have a few awards/honors less is fine. They have a lot of applications to read and just don't want people listing every award they've won since kindergarten.

but would they mind a 400 word essay when the max is 500?
