(I can weigh in here just bbriefly re: the authorial questioning on "what does fifty pages mean?" - use common sense - this goes for graduate admissions as well - it is an automatic huge negative if the applicant ignores the suggested advice about what to submit and sends something on the order of two or three times as long, or single-spaced, or anything else that shows a lack of a sense of proportion.)
