In case someone wants to be sure of their character count, you can check it in google docs.

Tools -> word count

These are the details you get :
Code:
Counts                        Selection    Document
Pages                                 0           2
Words                                 0           651
Characters (no spaces)                0           3351
Characters (with spaces)              0           3992

I believe GT doesn't allow you to submit your app until the character count(with spaces) goes below 4k.

If you want me to post/reply, use @[greprepin], will reply if I have anything to add. ECE Evals only!

anupratik0503,
I will be completing my GaTech form by this week. So i will update it for CS and ECE after that.

greprepin,
I believe the same word count information is available in most of the word processors like MS Word (I am using 2010 version though).

jitin.john : I was talking about character count with spaces which is required by GT. MS word gives word count, so I mentioned the use of google docs which explicitly mentions different kinds of counts (word and character).
