Format Question
« on: November 25, 2006, 09:37:37 AM »
This is probably a dumb question but how is everyone formatting their PS? 

Are you tabbing in each paragraph? 
Leaving a space in between paragraphs? 
1 inch margins?
Title for PS other then just "Personal Statement?"

Thank you - I havent written an essay in years!  :-\

1. I'd follow the directions on the app first - some schools want the PS titled specifically (for example, "Question 15"), some specify margins/font/spacing.

I tab each new paragraph, I don't add an extra space between paragraphs, 2x spaced, 12 font, 1 inch margins.

Thanks Bill!  I had mine like yours except in 11pt font - most of my essays have to be 2 pages maximum and 12pt makes it go over that just a little!
