question about SOP

Post by math_stu » Thu Nov 29, 2012 2:29 pm

Georgia Tech asks for the following

Why do you wish to do your doctoral work in the School of Mathematics at Georgia Institute of Technology?
limit 500 characters

What experiences have led you to seek a PhD?
limit 1000 characters

Please tell us more about yourself; special skills, interests, hobbies, goals, etc.
limit 1000 characters

Do 1000 characters mean 1000 words or 1000 letters? since 1000 letters is probably less than 200 words, sounds to few words to describe previous research experience (and 500 characters is definitely not enough to describe why I want to study somewhere)
