comment LaTeX Template for Graduate School Essays
As the director of a graduate program I can say that the format of your personal/academic statement is unlikely to have much influence on the admissions process. Focus on the content and why the program you're applying to is a good fit for your research interests, and make sure the prose is error free. Many universities have online applications so your statement may end up being plain unformatted text when it's read.

Not relevant to your question, but (as you can seen in our answers) you really shouldn't use $$ ... $$ for displayed math. See Why is [ .. ] preferable to $$ .. $$

comment Subfig no space between figures and double brackets
@Clarezoe There's no need to apologize. And, yes, I meant the smallest code that could reproduce the problem, not your entire source document. Welcome to the site, and please don't take my comments as enforcing "the rules". There aren't really any rules, but questions with minimal examples will likely get faster and more accurate responses than those that post only fragments. And you'll find that we're a pretty friendly bunch here.

comment Subfig no space between figures and double brackets
@clarezoe Yes. Clearly some of the other code is relevant, since my example has no extra brackets and yours does. By providing a complete document (with all the unnecessary stuff removed) it's easier for someone here to just compile your example rather than have to make their own. The process of doing so can also solve your problem as it seems to have. How were we to know that you were loading both the subfig and subfigure packages without a complete example?

comment Subfig no space between figures and double brackets
@clarezoe Without a real minimal example like the one I just posted in my answer, we can't solve your double brackets problem. Have you redefined \thesubfigure somewhere?

comment If I'm about to write a book on LaTeX, should I wait for a LaTeX3 release?
What's more important than LaTeX3 at the moment is solid coverage of the different engines: XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX in comparison with pdfLaTeX. No beginner's book, IMO should ignore these any more. With respect to LaTeX itself, the basic stuff is all the same, but both XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX provide simple access to system fonts, which for beginners can be very helpful.

@Avi I don't know. I don't use this citation scheme generally. I've asked a new question to see if anyone here has some other ideas. Unsorted citations and floats
