Question...

Is Courier New fair game as a font when the Professor doesn't specify Times New Roman?

I have a 30 page paper due next week. If I use pretty much any other font I have 12 pages as of right now, if I use Courier I have 17. Discuss amongst yourselves.

I've always thought that Courier New looks rather unseemly. But, you can use Times New Roman just expand the character spacing to make it look like you have more text than you have. If you use Microsoft Word, it's found click Format, then Font, then the Character Spacing tab. You can usually get away with expanding the font by 1 pt without it looking too obvious.

Good luck.
