Hello there,
I am just wondering if you guys left blank lines in your personal statement. I understand that this is recommended across multiple websites but I was wondering if people did leave the lines.
Leaving lines does eat into the limit so less content can be included.

Thank you

I feel like as long as you're not drastically under the word/line limit then it'll be fine. I only did 43/47 lines if I remember correctly.

I used every line (left no blanks) and no university has seemed to care so far - I had never heard about leaving blank lines, just starting a new line with each paragraph! Seems like a really unnecessary waste of space to me.

It's definitely recommended to have line breaks between paragraphs - it makes it far easier for the admissions tutors to read it. Often you don't have to take out/condense a lot of content either if you are using all 47 lines
