Pretty much you always double space. But your best bet is to contact the medical program and ask them rather than people online who have no idea.

Go to 'format' and under 'line' check one and a half spaces. In order to change what you have already written, you will have to go to the end of the manuscript, highlight the whole manuscript, and then do your format change. If you don't do that, it will only change the format for whatever you add on after the original two hundred pages.

I've checked this in OpenOffice 3.0, but as I recall, it should work in earlier versions too. Edit->Select All. Format->Paragraph->Indents and Spacing. The option for line spacing is on the left, near the bottom. Change it to whatever you want and click OK.

If it's like word, place your cursor anywhere in the text and hit control/command + A to select all. Then go to the paragraph menu and go to line spacing, set it to 1 and 1/2 spaces.

Well, you should be able to select all of the text Ctrl+A then there should be an option under "format" or "paragraph" that would allow you to change the spacing. i don't know, i don't use open office.

Aldrich Originally Answered: College personal statement question- Should it be double spaced or single.and what font and size do I use?
The format doesnt matter unless the application specifically says otherwise. But it is always best too keep it simple. Black ink, Calibri(10pt) or TNR (12pt), and single, double, or 1.5 spaced are all fine. However I know a lot of people that use single spaced as the default for everything unless it is a paper or something that requires feedback and corrections.

Whenever you have to due an essay for English, social studies, etc. always: 1. Double-space 2. Use Times New Roman font 3. Type if possible (this impresses the teachers and layouts the essay neatly) 4. Use font size 12 5. Try to be extremely detailed in your paragraph and explanations 6. Check & proofread your essay over and over for any spelling errors (do NOT rely on Word spell check) and make any needed revisions 7. Find good proofreaders to help check and give you helpful feedbacks about your essay. Good-Luck
