College Essay

I have already submitted my college essay to the colleges I have applied through common app, what worries me is that I noticed how two of my paragraphs weren't indented, as well as my title. I couldn't edit it, so I was forced to submit it as it was. My question is, will it affect my acceptance?

I don't believe that it will affect you much since they are mostly just going to look for what makes you individually you. Just make sure that in your college essay that you show off everything that makes you different from the rest.

When colleges are reviewing you for admission, they care way more about your personality and ability as a student than a bit of indentation. As long as you have a strong essay that tells your story, I would say that you don't have anything to worry about. :)

That will be fine for some reason commonapp is difficult to indent things I would say grammar matters more, but most important is the content of your essay.

I don't think it'll affect much. Colleges are mostly going to focus on what you wrote, so you shouldn't worry about it
