Question Personal Statement, What font and size

Ok I understand that the personal statement should be in one page but isn't that dependent on the type of font the size of it !!!

What font and size are adequate for ERAS so that I know whether programs would then print a one page document?

you can edit/write it in any size and font you want.....when you will uploade it to your ERAS account, it will transform automatically into courier new and size 10.
