There is no "right" answer here...

but from what I have seen, the consensus is

1 page (max)

11/12 pt font

single spaced. (single space PS too)

i believe most schools prefer double spaced.

i've seen a lot of tlsers say "1 page" as well.

i did two pages double spaced 11 point font and so far in at michigan, duke, and ucla. I think the rule of thumb is, say only what you need to say and nothing more. if you honestly believe you need more than 1 page, which i did, go for it. but if you can edit it down, then do that.

TCR is to ask the SCHOOL, not tls. Do this via email.
