on the college applications, some colleges state the average essay length (e.g. 1 to 3 pages, half a page, etc.). Is this length double spaced or single spaced? thanks

thanks but that doesn't answer my question. I am asking because in the short answer questions, they say the average is half a page but im not sure if this is single spaced or double spaced. If anyone knows, please help! thanks

In most instances, double spaced 1.5 pages is about 500 words. Just make sure your essays fits in that area ( you can even manipulate margins and font a little ) and most colleges won't even know you went over (or under) the limit.
