    Does anybody know whether or not we can paragraph on our essays? On the computer screen, my paragraphs show up, but when I print out my application, it's just one long block of words. What has everyone else been doing? Does it matter? PLEASE HELP!

    Adcoms know the whole paragraphing thing is messed up. AMCAS says that the schools will see your essays as you entered them, not as they show up in the print-out. Nonetheless, some people are skipping a line between paragraphs to add a "break" in there.

    The print out shows your essays under some other type of display protocol, thus the paragraph things don't show up. It will appear exactly like you entered it when the adcoms get it (whenever that will be).
