for USC, in the activities section, you can write as much as you want to describe your activities, etc.

It's amazing how much analysis goes into these types of questions. I'm going to write a paragraph of five to ten sentences. There is no strict limit, so why make one up? I'll offer the classic English teacher response: "Write enough to sufficiently answer the question."

My gut is telling me that the two paragraphs should be able to fit easily on one page, single spaced.
