What is the word limit for personal statements?
That just fills the box you have on the UCAS form.
They always say they give you 47 lines etc, but in actual fact, they always cut it down to 45.
I suppose you could use the whole 47 lines, but the best ones I've seen have a space between each paragraph - looks much more classy and is definitely easier to read by an admissions tutor! (Mind you, you then have about 3 lines less to put all your amazing stuff in)
