statement of pupose

Hi everyone,

I'm just about ready to send off my application, and I can't find length requirements for the statement of purpose anywhere on the site. Most places look for around 500 words, but I don't want to make any ill-advised assumptions for something so important. Can anyone clear this up for me? I know I could always call on Monday, but I'm antsy...

Thanks!

Mine was about a page and a half, which I thought was long. But I had a lot to write about. One of my references is still involved in the program at UT and helps them write curriculum, she told me about all kinds of things that I needed to discuss in my statement of purpose so I followed her guidance. I got in.

I know their writing prompt on the site is very brief, but I wrote about what I've done as a paraprofessional and what I've learned.
