    Hi, I have a few things which I may need to change in my personal statement:

    1. The number I want to use in my personal statement is 660000, which form should I write it in:
    660,000 or
    660 000 or
    six hundred and sixty thousand

    2. Is the "the" needed or does it make sense/sound better without it:
    "...they have sufficient knowledge to add to..." or
    "...they have the sufficient knowledge to add to..."

    Thank You!

    I would save the character count and go with 666,000 and the first statement without 'the'!
