250 words is nothing, personally I'd rather that than pay $20 US. :(

I'm canadian, I went to register and it charged me $20.

Also, what the fuck they give us 3 business days to get them the essay? I'm going to have to express send it? Retarded. Should have an online entry system or something.

edit: Purolator Express: $50.05 2 Business Days

That's my only option to get it there in time...

You are incorrect. You need to do the essay for the first and second online qualifier.
