Personal Statement Personal Statement doubt, please help

I forgot to indent my paragraphs in my personal statement. Is this a must or is it okay if I just sent it without indentation?

And if I should indent my paragraphs, should I rewrite it and reassign it even though most of my programs have downloaded my applications?

Please this doubt has been killing me. Thanks

Don't worry about the indenting your paragraph. An online professional document proofreader actually told me I don't need to indent it, although I still did because I feel awkward not to. But I'm just telling you that it's not as necessary as we think it is.

i did not indent all my PS based on my research and from professional editors, it is in fact recommended not to indent because the PD software program does not consistently recognize the indentations in the PS.

so don't worry. mine, i purposely did not indent my PS.
sorry for this late reply but i hope this help elimates your worries.
i replied although already too late because i saw there is only one reply to this thread. i hope ths thread will help future applicants when they search for answers to the same question as yours
