    It's proper and proffessional which is what you're aiming for. I'm in high school and we have to follow MLA format.

    How do you plan to send it in? Handwritten? They want it typed so they can read it easily. You can type it on a computer, or on a typewriter, but it does need to be typed.

    It also looks more formal and professional, and you want that for college applications.

    Because so many people have bad writing and grammar skills. When typed, there is a program that will help with punctuation, spelling and will be neat enough for anyone to read.

    Because If you have horrable hand writing then the teacher/ perfessers can't read it and they will basicly be forced to give you a bad grade because they cant read it

    by the way typing is way faster then writing it out

    Because professors don't want to waste time trying to read terrible handwriting.
