Re: [kcole7] IOWA page count

Setting aside (momentarily) the generally accepted fact that it's the manuscript that counts...

I got into Iowa (hi Vivien...I'm enjoying the New Yorkers ;) ) with an overall undergrad GPA of 2.47.

However, I had several things to offset that, including the fact that I got a 3.7 in my major (English, which I had been minoring in until my senior year; I made sure I explained this in my application). I also did really well on the GREs (700-something in English).

Nevertheless, I concur that you should focus on turning in the absolute best manuscript you can.
