So what do you guys think?
I think your essay is a little bit too broad and general. You know, because of the word limit in you case, every word counts. You need to cut down some unnecessary materials until you feel that any further cut is quite painful. Then add some more details. limiting your word to just 700 characters while show as many useful info as possible is a hard work, but you have to manage it.
