    Did you separate paragraphs with tabs or spaces (spaces--not single character spaces, but *enter* and *carriage return*) or both?

    For AMCAS, it seems like spaces would be better than a five-space indent, since the two times you press enter counts as four characters, one less than an indent.

    For TMDSAS, it seems like a five space indent would work better since you are limited to 62 lines.

    Could somebody tell me what they did for each essay? Thank you . . . <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    i heard that amcas said to save it as a text file, open it up in word pad, and then use that on your application to eliminate the spacing problems
