Stanford PS length

Postby ocean » Thu Nov 25, 2010 4:15 pm

When schools limit the maximum length of the PS to be 2 pages, they usually specify it, something like: 1 inch margin, at least 11 font and most importantly, double space.

There is no such specification from Stanford, all it says is two pages. Anyone else notices this?

Yeah, just use common sense. Don't have 8 point font, etc.

hey, Knock. My common sense works for the font size, but not for single and double space:(

I double spaced all my essays. Most schools seemed to want it double spaced. Check this out: --LinkRemoved--.
