    Has anyone had problems with their personal statement once it was printed out after you submitted it to AMCAS ? I called AMCAS and they told me that the med schools will see it in the screen form and not the printed form. Is this consistent with any other inquires ? thanks

    Yes, that's what happened to mine last year, and everyone elses, so I've heard. Supposedly what they tell you is correct..The copy the school gets shows up with paragraphs etc, though I never saw one to be sure.

    I heard the same as the previous post. Mine was a blob as well last year. The schools did get paragraphs, but the personal statement is tiny print on the copy they get.

    Are you sure that med schools get the paragraphs? If not, are there no ways to fix it? It seems quite daunting to read. Thanks.

    guys, you don't have to worry. The printing you do is not how it shows up. They receive it as paragraphs.
