    Typed, double spaced, 12 point serif font, with indented paragraphs.

    That's typically the academic standard for assignments at the post secondary level, so it's not unreasonable to expect college admission essays to be the same way. It makes it easier to read, and allows for easier annotation of the text.

    Double space, ALL my english teachers told me and my class mates through out high school. "Use double spacing" so im guessing you would double space.
