    If you have to send a paper copy, is it possible to edit it so that your essays have paragraph breaks? How would you do that? Surely you don't just send it in as is?

    I left blank lines between my paragraphs on my AMCAS app. I think you could go into your app and make that change without it affecting your submission date. (You might want to check with AMCAS before you do that, but I did make several changes after I submitted with no dire effects). If you don't want to risk it, you should be able to do a cut & paste and recopy job that would be hardly noticeable. I did that with the list of schools section, because I didn't want all my schools to see the whole list -- or even the amount of space the whole list would have taken.

    Thanks for your advice SMW - but when I try to go into my essay in AMCAS it won't let me touch it.

    Does anyone have any other ideas? I don't even see how I could cut and paste it - there is a certain amount of space on the copy for the essay, and if I paste something with paragraph breaks on top it will cover up part of the next section.
    Help!
