Let’s turn to UCF: If you use the school’s own application, you’re asked to select two of the following four prompts and write essays of up to 500 words combined (or 7,000 characters —which allows for lots more than 500 words): The recommended maximum for the Coalition App’s Personal Statement is 550 words, but UF has a strict limit of 2,500 characters, including spaces.
The 2,500 character limit is almost certain to allow fewer than 500 words, so that 2,500-character limit has to be kept in mind as one crafts the Personal Statement for UF.
