Personal Statement Formatting Questions

Postby irving80 » Sat Nov 05, 2016 5:40 am

So I had a couple of questions regarding how to format your PS, hopefully someone can help out!

Is the info on this website on how the PS should be formatted accurate? http://www.gradvocates.com/blog/2013/03 ... ormatting/

I'm wondering several things:

1) Can I use the font Garamond pt. 12? (I like it more because it frees up more space than Times New Roman pt. 12)

2) Do I need to justify the alignment?

3) Should header alignment be on the right-hand side?

4) Besides the following info, is there anything else I need to add to the header?

Last name, First name
LSAC Account #
Personal Statement

5) No titles for PS, right? lol

THANK YOU GUYS! :lol:

Sorry I can't be more helpful, but the only answer I know is that there should be no title and the header should be right-aligned. Also, your header is correct.

Also, I would do Times New Roman 11 instead of Garamond 12...I know TNR 11 is fine.
