Law School Admissions / Re: resume - is 2 pgs ok?

is anyone (straight from college or a year out) listing high school? what if it reflects geographic diversity?

The only reason you list high school is if you won the nobel prize or were a jeopardy contestant or something

so valedictorian wouldn't cut it

No. Remember in high school when people told you that all the high school valedictorians in the country were probably applying to Yale, Harvard, et. al.? Well, now you don't just have all the high school valedictorians from one year applying, you have the high school valedictorians from the last 5 years applying (not a proven fact, but basically a lot). Congratulations for being hs valedictorian and all that, and I'm sure you are proud of it. But listing it won't set you apart from the crowd, except by making it look that you are stuck in high school, and/or haven't updated your resume since 2002/2003

i was definitely leaning toward cutting it (the idea of listing anything from hs seems horrible)-- just wanted an opinion outside of my career services, which said to keep it

for yale's "answer this on a separate sheet" page, are you adding any formatting/tables or are you keeping it as basic & list-y as possible?

harvard doesn't have any supplementary forms up on lsac-- when's the dean's cert coming?

It isn't unless you're accepted.  They've changed their policy for this year.

thanks for the info!

There isn't any advantage to sending an incomplete app in over not sending one at all (it doesn't get considered till it is complete so its not like it helps you "get it considered early in the process") so why even bother?

is that definitely true? will an app that's complete except for an lsat score reserve your place in the stack?

is it possible to have it both ways? because i'd like to pay for the reports/ship it all out before late october if my application could be deemed 'complete' without the 2nd score. when people send off the apps prior to score reporting, does the admissions office say, "oh, this file came in 300th; it's missing an lsat score but it's secured the 300th place for review in november." or is it not complete til it's complete?
