PS 12pt or 11pt

Postby Schang1 » Tue Nov 01, 2011 3:13 pm

So far, UCLA is the only school on my list that requires a 12pt personal statement. Have any of you submitted your PS in 11pt font? I know there are some schools that explicitly state "no less than 11pt" but what about those schools that don't say anything? :)

11pt is fine if they don't specify.

Would you advise me to keep the same size font throughout my app (except for Resume). Like right now I have 11pt font for my PS and DS, but have 12pt font for GPA and LSAT addendums.. does that look bad?

This is much too small of a thing on which to base your rejection.

I know :( I just want to make the best out of my app.

I kept everything 11 pt except my resume, which is formatted weird with different fonts.
