That's 5 questions :p and yes.

Don't be fooled though, spaces count as characters, and 900 characters is absolutely brutal to put your life story in. Especially because you need to hit all 19203912 talking points to have a decent shot of being accepted.

All the little things you need to talk about.

IE.

1. Waterloo is #1
2. Engineering is #1
3. Why you love Waterloo
etc etc

all the kiss-assy stuff that's the pre-req. Just make a list or something of all the key ideas you want to talk about, then form your paragraph based off of those things. I don't know if that's how anyone else did theres, but that's how i did mine *shrug*
