    I'm trying to indent the first line of my personal statement. This is proving to be impossible. I've already spent 20 minutes monkeying around. I have artificially indented the other paragraphs by clicking the space bar a couple of times but it doesn't work for the first paragraph. Did you guys just skip indentation altogether or what? THANKS A MILLION FOR YOUR HELP and sorry for the worthless thread (for you at least :p).

    You can try as many times as you want and all you will wind up with is:

    From all the accounts I've read, it's just not possible to get it to indent. It seems like all the PS's are supposed to come out with equally ugly formatting.

    I suppose you could put in a period and then a bunch of spaces, but just spaces will get clipped.

    . . Like this?


    It'd look dumb though. Don't worry about indenting.

    Just do the style of the double return in between paragraphs, no indentation. I think it looks cleaner, anyway.

    Bingo. For a new paragraph, simply leave a blank line between it and the previous one. This is how you "indent" on the AMCAS PS. And as unsung said, I think it actually looks better.
