lj123 Posted December 18, 2009 Share Posted December 18, 2009 Hi, I'm new here, and I apologize for not going to introduce myself in the intro thread, but I'm freaking out here and would love some advice! So, I'm applying for 8 schools this round, have turned in half of the applications, and have been taking a few days break before I finish them up...and it just occurred to me that I may have made an awful mistake with my writing sample. I sent in a selection (the analysis part) of my undergraduate thesis, but the formatting was a mess, and I was so concerned about my PS that I didn't think about it. I wasn't a sociology major, so my thesis is formatted in MLA style...and I single-spaced it (long story, but that's what my current--also not sociology--MA program likes). It came out to 25 pages including references and tables but without an abstract. I can't do anything about the 4 schools I've already applied to, but does anybody have recommendations for the final 4? Should I go through and reformat it in ASA style? Add a title page and abstract back in? Double space it and cut out parts of it so it's not so long? I can't believe I didn't think about this earlier... Speaking of which, I've been sending in my PS single-spaced, too... Am I completely screwed, or am I worrying over nothing? Thanks in advance for any advice!
