    So I've been working really hard to cut down my PS to allow for line breaks between paragraphs but then a teacher told me that I just have to leave a gap (pressing enter once). Which one should I do? Please help

    Do like breaks. The people reading your personal statement don’t want to look at a block of text. If they’re stressed enough from their job they might even give up on you.
    So what i mean by line breaks is

    instead of

    I was always told paragraphs are important and they must be clear.
