Today pretty much sucked, I went into university to revise for an exam that I have on Tuesday and found out that a 2,500 word independent research essay which I thought was due in on Friday is actually due in for Tuesday morning, the same day as my exam.

It wouldn't be so bad if it were a straight forward question, but having to come up with the topic yourself makes it harder in my opinion. Anyway, I think I should be ok as I'm pretty much finishing up but I usually manage my time much better than this, I was just wondering what the longest allnighter anyone has managed as I'm sure it's much more than 2,500 words... it's gotta be a genuine essay though, not something like 'my dream of the year 3050 AD'

I longest I've ever written was ~1700 words in one night and it was in high school. I haven't had to write any 'big' essays in University yet, I guess its because I'm in 1st year and I'm taking a lot of science.

I'm in the 10th grade and so far I think that I've written a 3 page paper in one evening somewhere in the 9th grade. I wouldn't know how many words that is because we don't get word specific papers but I'm assuming it's less than the two of your's papers.

I have to finish a 4-7 page one tonight though, due Tuesday, so I might not finish it.

Not all written in 1 night, but just about finished a 9600 word report that I started a few days back. When I went to bed last night it was 6000, so I guess 3600 is my best in one day!

Oh..and thats for Computer Science, so science doesn't escape!

The last paper I had to write was requirement 2+ pages.

Within an hour I did 4 1/2 Pages.

For the paper we had to compare two books neither of which I read. I got a B on it and the reason for only getting a B was due to the lack of punctuation.

Our high school english program was amazing. And by amazing I mean ridiculous. We had to write a 35 page term paper on a poem. :| I wrote it in three days and managed to get an A+. We had to have 100 sources. Obviously, I had gotten those sources prior to those three days.

^ where the hell do you go to school :o

In high school so many of my teachers would give 90+ students in previous grades 60s on their papers and give them comments like "Don't bull**** me" or "this paper is useless"

Hmm, this year wrote a 35 page SWOT analysis (if your doing business you know what I'm talking about) on Apple computers in 3 days, also wrote a 60 page business plan for a luncheon I had to organize in about 4 days I believe...

Think 60 page was as much as I have ever wrote give or take, but have written quite a few this year...:/

22 page paper in around 9 hours (and none of that double-spaced 12pt font nonsense). Fun times. :D Of course, it helps if you know the subject by heart sooo...

And to the guy that criticized Lord of the Flies, BLASPHEMY!

Hmmm, I'm actually in a French high school, my 5th year, senior year...My adored language is English. I have my reasons, mostly by simplicity, and the actual style of speaking. Anyways, I usually have to deal with French essays, but I guess, the highest grade I had for an English essay was the 2 pages one, which I did in class in about 45mins I suppose.
