1500 words in MLA format is how many pa...

1500 words in MLA format comes out to how many pages?

I have taken about 6-7 Gordon rule classes at this point and so far I have not had to write a entirely MLA format paper.


Can someone link me to a good site explaining the suttle in-text differences, if any? (I know quotations, paraphrases, and works cited differ mainly)

Why on earth would one need to write so much on a college application?

name, address, personnumber, phonenumber, and what one is applying for is enough...

In the US you have to write short essays answering questions they ask.

It's part of the acceptance process since there are so many people applying.

yes because you give the teacher a disk with the file on it for every assignment.

I think they just have a rough idea how many pages it should come out to.

Well first off, in MLA they spell things kinda weird. Like suttle, it's spelled subtle...
