- Softs: Student body gov., numerous university committees, business chair for largest student-run fair in US,  lots of volunteer work, internship during UG, etc.
- LOR's : three very strong letters; from a professor, an employer of 4 years, and the director of a non-prof. legal aid group I volunteer with.
- Three misdemeanors from highschool days, all over 5 years in the past with not even a trafic ticket since.

The Schools:
- Arizona State U. (PT)

Law School Admissions / Resume Question(s)
« on: August 18, 2009, 01:15:16 PM »
Hey guys, I am just curious as to how you all formatted your resumes. I am assuming that resumes for law school apps. follow the same guidelines as to most others. With this I mean that they can/should be tailored to reflect you best accomplishments and previous employment. Somebody told me that they would list every job they have had since high school "because the BAR is going to look at it one day and want to see that." I think that's bull. Correct me if I am wrong, but a good resume is a page long and highlights the good stuff and not all the rest of the crap a person has done since they were 18.
