Personal Statement Format Question

Postby Beantown26 » Tue Sep 07, 2010 10:30 am

Northeastern requires your P.S. to be two pages, double spaced, and 12pt font.

However, it makes no mention of the type of font that can be used, do you think it would be appropriate to use a smaller sized font that is still 12pt so long as it look professional?

I used Garamond, at the suggestion of my consultant. As long as it's something very plain, I imagine its acceptable unless the specify Times New Roman. I imagine Wingdings is probably frowned upon.

Really? I was thinking of going WEBdings 2 interspersed with Kenji and Aramaic.
