Hi everyone, On one of my MOC's applications, he has a series of questions that are obviously meant to be short answer, mini-essays (250 word limit). For the majority of them, that limit was not hard at all to fill. However, there is one question that seems pretty straightforward, and I feel as if elaboration would be considered off-topic or simple fodder: "Do you plan to pursue a career in the military service?" I've already answered it in a single sentence, and I have added on what I thought was immediately pertinent: How long I plan to serve, what I hope to do, and why. I feel that embellishing the "why" should be what I should do, because with a limit like 250 words, a 50 word response feels way too brief. However, I don't want to do too much, especially if the question itself does not directly ask for it. What do you guys think?
