    So, I put my rough copy of my PS on AMCAS so if it would fit, and looked at the print version. Am I alone in this, or is everyone else's turn into one big mish mash, replete with question marks for apostrophe's and paragraph's running together?
    :confused:
    any volunteers for reading it. Its still in its very rough stages, just looking for content at this point.

    DW, did you save your essay in text format? I found that the problems you described are a result of trying to cut and paste from an MS Word document.
