Is it true that putting 4 spaces between each single spaced paragraph can count as "double spaced"? I'm a little confused about how to use block spacing...I want to fit in more content if possible, but don't want to disregard the directions that tell me 2 pages, double spaced 11 point font is the max for personal statements. Does anyone know the acceptable standard here?

This is extremely simple. Double-spaced means double spaced. I'm almost certain that, as a college graduate (or a soon-to-be graduate), you should know what double-spaced means. It doesn't mean single-spaced with an extra return after paragraphs, it doesn't mean 1.5-spaced, it doesn't mean using two spaces instead of one at the end of each sentence. If this is giving you a lot of trouble I recommend another line of work.

What? No. Where on earth did you hear that? Double-spaced means double-spaced; it even has its own shiny clicky button in Word.DefyingGravity wrote:Is it true that putting 4 spaces between each single spaced paragraph can count as "double spaced"?
Indent your paragraphs and don't put an extra line between them. That will save you a few lines.
