I really only have one good piece to submit for my written work on my application, and it is 2096 words long including the bibliography. I can't really shorten it by the full 96 words, so I was wondering if the bibliography (which is 227 words), is included. I cannot find anything on the website that clearly states the policy on this matter. I've had it go either way in the past, and thought I'd double check before begging for a bonus assignment that I can write in time.
I have emailed to ask, but not yet heard back (and all previous queries have gotten replies that make me question if they actually read the message, even on plain yes or no questions (ie: they answer and i cant actually tell if its a yes or no.))
Thank you for any responses.
