    Making one inch indent before every new paragraph is not working for me in AMCAS.

    Do you think leaving a full line of space between paragraphs will separate each paragraph when med schools see it?

    thank you

    that's what i did. when i looked at my essay in the screen where i pasted it in, it was properly indented. but when i printed the app out, there were no indents. so i just left a blank space to separate each paragraph. actually i think it looks more professional that way anyway. :)

    it is the same for everyone....

    you can't indent but leave a line between paragraphs....otherwise, it will look as if none of us passed grade 3....(proper syntax rules) hehe :D

    actually, i've been repeatedly reassured that the essays will look exactly how we enter them when med schools see them, NOT as they look printed out.

    so either way works... a space in between paragraphs or indent as usual.
