    Hello,
    I am about to write a personal statement for VMI, but it doesn't mention how many words are limited. Anyone please let me know the word limit. Thank you

    I would imagine that it should fit on the one page fillable PDF form they give you on the web site.

    They didn't ask me for an estimated word count, so as THParent said, I just filled the page.

    Essay was just about 500 words.

    No minimum. Optional. Best if you do it. Be sincere.
