The format of the PS, so confused

Postby atkpl » Tue Nov 16, 2010 11:56 pm

Ok, I searched previous thread, but I am stupid enough not to fully understand yet.

So, if the app just say "Do not exceed two pages, double-spaced"

What kind of font, font size, margin are the standard?

I sent an e-mail to a school, and they said "just do not exceed two pages"

that didn't really help..

So what are the standard??

2 pages double spaced. Times New Roman ( or very similar) Font- anything from 10.5 to 12.

topic- whatever you want. Sometimes they give you things to write about, sometimes they dont. Search the personal statement board for some tips

If you're at the margin, you need to make sure your PS is extra special.
