All right, I'm writing an essay for a scholarship and it needs to be finished today.
I looked at the FAQs on the scholarships website and they request a 12 point font, but don't specify which font. Which font is "safest"? Right now I have it in the Word 2007 default, Calibri, but maaan, it looks so huge in 12 point. I am wondering if Times New Roman would be better?
Next question: The scholarship is focused on a certain person and asks that the essay involve that person's life, works, etc. No problem, I got a book the guy wrote from the library and referenced it both directly (quotes) and indirectly. My question is am I expected to cite it like I would in a normal school essay? At the moment I have two versions saved, both with a bibliography at the end listing the book and one with actual MLA citations in the main body of the essay.
This leads me to my final question. Assuming citing within the essay is indeed the right thing to do, is MLA the best format to use?
