Formatting a personal statement

Postby bigfootseattle » Sat Oct 13, 2012 6:02 pm

Hey guys, I am getting ready to start drafting my personal statement. I have already looked at length/content requirements for schools that I am applying to, but I haven't found anything about how to format it on the page (besides double spaced, 12pt font etc.). I don't know if there is an old thread about this or not. If there is, a link would be much appreciated!

Thanks!

Heading should your name on top left, lsac # top right. Skip a line, write PS. Double space, 12 pt font, reg indentations, etc. 2pg usually, check school sites for specifics.

That;s the consensus that i've seen here on TLS. Should be simple. Don't need to title it or write PS on the top or anything. Just name and LSAC #
