Just Realized Paper Settings Were On A4 Rather Than Letter

Postby kboulder » Sun Oct 24, 2010 11:05 pm

Hi,

I've already submitted several applications and I just realized that the paper size in Microsoft Word for my personal statement was set to A4 than the standard letter size. Do you think this will be an issue when the adcomms print out my application for review?

No.

It might make the margins look wonky, but everything will show up- the sizes aren't that different.

I'm so glad you posted this. Mine was set to A4 too. Time to fix it! Thanks :-)

No pdf's on LSAC right? Any recommendations on how to ensure that meticulous resume formatting doesn't get mixed up going from Word '08 on Mac to any other version? (other than saving it as .doc)

Save the pdf as a jpeg file and then put it into a word document.

Also, when you submit it to LSAC, it is then put into pdf format.

the submission process generates a pdf of your completed application. you can just check the formatting and everything then
