What do they mean?

1 page 12 font? single/double spaced? Ariel/times new roman? with title? etc etc...

Can someone give me a word number approximation of what "1 page" really is?
How are you arriving at this number?

    I used siZe 11 calibri single spaced

    Not saying that's right.. But I used it

    One page is one page. If you go more alter the font

    And most people don't have a title for page 217 in their autobigraphy.

    well one page single/double spaced is very different.
    I'm talking about the first essay btw, not the 217, same rules for both right?

    In my case, I used single space with 12pt Times New Roman and I separated each paragraph with an extra line.

    One side, 12pt Times New Roman with one-inch margins is a good template.

    This is quite a useless conversation. As long as it's not something too outrageous (8 point cursives or 14 point Comic Sans), you're likely to be fine. I don't imagine an adcom will care too much if you've used Calibri or TNR, 11 point or 12 point. I generally double space most of my writing; I find it more readable.
