    I'm applying for a scholarship and you need to do a 2500 word essay. I've done about 600 words and I think I'm pretty much enough but do you think I should do more anyway just to fill it up or what?

    If youve done a good answer in 600 words then leave it at that. It depends how they word it. If it were me I would use the limit as a guideline.

    I think it's not enough.
