Length of PhD application writing samples

Hi guys,

With applications for English PhD programs, when they say they want a 20-25 page writing sample, they mean 20-25 double-spaced pages, right?  I was assuming that the whole time, but then just had the urge to confirm with all of you...

It's standard MLA format, so you should go with 1" margins all around, size 12 Times New Roman font, and double-spacing throughout.

When it comes to your statements, it's up to you. I think I did 1 1/2 spaced lines to truncate the length visually while still giving the eyes comfort room for reading.
