    I've nearly finished my personal statement and I mentioned a few book titles.

    I wrote them in italics. An example: "... I have recently read Author's Book Title Here and...".

    Do the italics show up when the statement gets to admissions, or do I need to do the following: "... I have recently read Author's 'Book Title Here' and..."?

    Sorry for the weird example sentence, but I don't like posting any part of my personal statement.


    Yes it does, all font changes show up when you print, like Bold, underline etc...
