I just checked the application I sent to my early decision college today on the CommonApp's Web site. When I looked at my essay (which I copy-and-pasted from Microsoft Word to their form), I noticed that all the paragraph formatting was lost. It looked just like one humongous block of text.
Is this how my college receives the essay? If so, should I send them a print copy of my essay to make the reading a bit easier on the eyes?
