This is for grad school. I have written paper's before, I'm just caught up in how important this is in the long run, and how my grade is affected by this paper. I have a paper due in about 7 hours for my research proposal, basically the paper the preceeds my thesis, which i'm wriitng next semester. The paper is like 97% completed. Now my stupid question is in terms of the font. My professor dictated 12 size font, and either times new roman or arial. And that the paper should be/is eight pages in legnth. NOw I've been writing, editing, revising since about SUnday. I feel as though I have a finished product, and have said everything I need to say in teh context of the paer. And now I apologize for wasting your time. In TImes New roman: it's 7 pages and a paragraph. In Arial it comes to the end of the 8th page. DO you think it's better to hand in a slightly shorter paper ? As I think the Times New Roman font, appears more porfessional and more academic. Do I risk getting *****ed at and shift the font to 12.5. Or should I just not worry about half a page, and content myself with the knowledge that it's in the quality of my paper. I appreciate your help or even the reinforcement that I've absolutely have lost my mind.
