My personal statement prints out in a faulty paragraph structure...I know some schools request hard copies of the you think AMCAS will end them the messed up version?

Members don't see this ad.
Supposedly AMCAS's elecronic transmission has correct paragraph structure. For the hard copies schools are requesting, you could write in the paragraph editing sign.
From last year this is what I can tell you:

When I printed mine out myself, it printed with no paragraph breaks. But when I was at an interivew, I saw a copy of the AMCAS that they had given to the interviewers, and it was printed with paragraph breaks.

Therefore, just make sure you have typed in the correct paragraph breaks, and they should turn out fine when AMCAS generates hard copies.
