Will the spaces before each paragraphs (indents? is that the right word?) show up in the final version of my AMCAS that is sent to the medical schools? It all just looks like a huge paragraph, and I don't want to make a bad impression to the medical schools... thanks for the info..

No problem, you're welcome.

I wondered about this too until my first interview when I saw the interviewer put my file down on the table and saw the page with my essay -- and yep, it was formatted just like it had been when I typed it. Also after one of my acceptances the school sent me a copy of the AMCAS they recieved on me to confirm that all of that info was correct, and I saw the essay again then, and it was formatted properly. I don't know why they can't get the student copy to format properly when printing.
