2 Pages.. Double Or Single (Fordham)

2 Pages.. Double Or Single (Fordham)
« on: October 26, 2007, 09:32:45 PM »
I finally finished up my Personal statement and it is a little over 3 pages double spaced. Obviously I can cut it down but I'm trying to see how much. The Fordham site states

# Is a personal statement required?

Yes. It can be written on the topic of your choice and should not exceed two pages, single or double spaced.

So essentially they're saying it can be 2 pages single which is equivalent to roughly 4 1/4 double or two pages double. Am I reading this correctly?!? Also what is the etiquette for the optional statement regarding length, mine is about 3 1/4 pages as well.

Thanks in advance.

I assumed they meant 2 pages double or 1 page single.


It is probably worth calling and asking.

Use 1.5 lines. I would absolutely limit it to 2 pages.
