Essays: Double spaced?

<p>for essays like personal statement and short answer in common app
should i double space?</p>

<p>also is giving 4 recs in too much</p>

<p>and how did u guys fit ur awards in that tiny litle space in the comon ap
thx</p>

<p>NOn o no NO double space. I don't understand why people (not you but people in general) are so obsessed with double-spaced work. The only reason you double space schoolwork is to allow room for the teachers to correct your assignments and make suggestions. What use is that space on a college recommendation?</p>

<p>"also is giving 4 recs in too much"</p>

<p>If you're sure they're going to be VERY good recommendations. I'm sending in 4, because 2 are from non-academic relationship -- different perspective</p>

<p>"and how did u guys fit ur awards in that tiny litle space in the comon ap"</p>

<p>you DON'T. this is where you pick and choose what is most important to you. that's the point.</p>

<p>My essays are single spaced, with a double space between paragraphs. I've never seen any formal writings in double space, that's only for classwork like pebbles said.</p>

<p>4 recs shouldn't be too much, as long as they're not REALLY long.</p>

<p>well... some colleges do require double space :(</p>

<p>like UC</p>
