This sounded short when listed on the application form, but is anybody else finding the pinch of this limitation?

A lot of the schools just say they want a readable font and usually cut off the size at 11. The only school I've run into so far that explicitly asked for no smaller than 12 was UCLA.

I had to change my margins from 1 inch to 0.9 to make it 2 pages with 12 pt.  11 made it too small for my taste.

Anna Ivey says 11 point font and 1 inch margins all around.  As long as you respect exactly what the school asks for then you should be fine.
