The Case of the Vague & Ambiguous Contracts Exam Instruction

Ambiguous As always, quality investigative reporting from Above the Law.  Apparently, a contracts prof at Cornell told the students that there would be a word limit on the exam, and said it would be "well, maybe 1000 words."  Then, once the exam was given, no word limit was stated.  The students were unsure whether they needed to stay within 1000 words (and, if so, per question or per the whole exam?)  Some students chose to stay within 1000 words, others chose not to.

If you were the dean, how would you resolve this?  Read more of the story over at ATL to see how the situation has apparently been resolved.
