This is another neurotic pre-med question. Seriously, do what the poll says since it's really not a big deal to fill the entire space provided. Write what you have to say, but don't be ridiculously verbose or change font sizes to fill space. I think that would be unprofessional.

Use to gold star stickers to fill up any empty space and fill in the margins with colored pencil doodles. Make sure each line of text is a different color, in the order red-orange-yellow-green-blue-indigo-violet. :oops: :cool: ;) :rolleyes: :D :eek:

LOL, give the girl a break!

If I were you, I'd keep it same font, no change in margins...etc. It **is** okay to NOT use all the space provided, you know? I think they might like it too. Easy on the eyes.

Use a consistent font everywhere...

Ya'll are BRUTAL!

Have a little compassion! Come on...we were all there at one time or another and someone helped us out. Isn't that what this site is all about? In my opinion it's better to ask a "dumb" question than to make a simple, "neurotic" mistake on an application. What is two minutes of your time to help a fellow applicant feel a little more confident about their application?

Bless you TWEETY for having a heart!:clap:

Princess, I agree with Tweety. If you have any questions you can PM me :D

Ya know, this is another one of those threads that I figured would slip into obscurity (it was way back on page 2 when I found it) so I figured I would take pity on the poster and give a real answer outside of the poll. It happens alot where nobody answers a question, then someone finally posts something and everybody else jumps on to either add to the reply or criticise the only guy who was willing to answer the question in the first place.

Yeah ok, so I'm sorry I called her a neurotic pre-med. I'm neurotic too.
