Dear All,
How strict will adcoms be w/ margins on your PS? Mine is 2 pages double spaced but I fudged with the margins slightly to fit everything in. Will they care?

It may completely depend on the day your admissions guy is having. My suggestion: cut out a sentence or two and make it work. I'm sure it can be done.

I've been messing with the margins and font size big time. Poor idea?
Anyone have a good serif font slightly smaller than TNR

Garamond is the best font ever.

I really wouldn't mess with margin size. The day they read yours will probably be the day their spouse left them, and that wouldn't be a good thing...
