    In the preview of the personal statement, should there be empty lines after each paragraph? Since, I have 3994 characters in my personal statement this crucial and I am starting to panic.

    If you're talking about putting blank lines between paragraphs then it's recommended as it makes it easier to read. If you're worried about cutting down it really shouldn't be too much of a problem, mine started out as way over the limit ad I got it down and out blank line between paragraphs.

    Pretty sure you can do whatever you want, so long as it fits in the PS box on UCAS Apply. My advice would be to copy and paste it with the empty lines to see if it fits. If it does, then I don't see any problem with it but, if it doesn't, it's best to leave the empty lines out. The content of your personal statement is more important than the empty lines.

    There's no point having content if it can't be read.
