    Anyone else having this problem? I can put a space between each paragraph, but it wastes space. What should I do? Should I just put a space between each paragraph and not indent?

    I just didn't indent and put a space between paragraphs. All that matters is that the adcoms can tell where paragraphs start and end.

    Thanks guys...

    Meatloaf King-
    I'm currently in Army ROTC at UCLA. Next fall I'll either be in medical school or in a battle field somewhere (hopefully it'll be medical school).

    other people have called amcas and they said to save it as a text file, open it on wordpad, and then copy and paste it to your application....

    It did that last year too. We were told that the copy the school gets has the indentions in it. I figured that I wouldn't look bad if everyone else's was messed up anyway! :)

    Don't worry about it. The same thing happened last year. Just submit your app.
