Uploaded essays should be double-spaced and Limit to 2 pages - This is the criteria for Anderson Essay's


I have written 3 page essay( Times Roman 12 ) but when i tweaked with the margins ( 1" ) and changed the font to 10 , i could compress the whole into two pages( Arial + 10 )

How much we can teak with the margin/font when there are no restrictions by the school

I had the same issue with Anderson and spend many days editing. I made sure that I got my story across in size 11 fonts with the margins intact.

EDIT, SNIP , REVIEW .. repeat 10 times :)

It is just a 1st Draft and there will be further reviews..But wanna check with Others

Personally i feel, Anderson has the best Essays, as it gives me a chance to explain who i am...

did you visit the school and if so howz the experience...apart from the +ve's, did you find any weakness or some thing lacking..

Anderson's essays seem to be the eaisest. 5 pages in total.

I really like Question 1, where they ask you directly about your background. (other schools I have to fit my background into the questions)

I would leave the font and font size as default (times new roman, 12) and tweak the magins a little.... unless you have something really interesting to say.

Margin... Will give you the flexiblity to day trade, provided 25k min equity, and most securities require only .30 equity.

A good, basic standard is 12-point Times with a margin of 1-inch on all sides.

Hjort,

i wrote my Anderson essays in font size 10, Arial, ms word default margins, double spaced. both 2 page max essays were approx 1.5 pages long.

is this going to work against me? size 12 double spaced just did not look right to me- just an honest mistake.
