Length of PhD application writing samples

Hi guys,

With applications for English PhD programs, when they say they want a 20-25 page writing sample, they mean 20-25 double-spaced pages, right?  I was assuming that the whole time, but then just had the urge to confirm with all of you...

Thanks!

Also, don't worry if your sample ends up being a little under the suggested length (mine was, and it worked out fine). Better to give them a sample that's a couple pages shorter than to pad it.

Yep. Quality over length. (It's also fine if it's a few pages longer...as long as the argument merits the length).
