yea, I thought .pdf would be a good way to submit, but alas, it isn't listed as one of the file types you can use.

After thinking about this, I think my editor was right.

"After returning from Africa near the end of 2000, I chose to spend the next year working full-time rather than immediately return to school."

If I just wrote "I chose to immediately returning to school," it obviously would be wrong.  I think that's why it's return on not returning......?

do most schools require you to put your SSN and name on each page?  I wasn't planning on doing that (no title either  :-\)

LSAC and LSDAS / .rtf or .doc?
« on: September 23, 2004, 12:29:17 PM »
for those of you submitting apps via LSACD....

are you attaching your PS, etc. as a .doc file, .rtf, or something else?  or does it really matter since they print it out anyway?

Also, what kind of "aligment" are you using for your PS?  left or justify?

"I chose to spend the next year working full-time rather than immediately return to school."

Is this sentence gramatically correct? (should there be a hyphen in full time, and should I use "return" instead of "returning?"

junebug,

I had the same question (where to find a silent timer for cheap). Radioshack has the only silent timer I was able to find. If you start at zero and let it count up to 35 min, it will never beep (it will beep if you start at 35 and let it go to zero). I think it cost $10 to $15. I don't remember the name of the model, but it was made by radioshack, and if you go to the store, they should be able to help you find it...

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Application Question
« on: September 23, 2004, 09:12:21 AM »
I was wondering the same thing.... (sorry, I don't have the answer). If I apply to school x, does school x have a way to find out which other schools I apply to (through LSAC or something)?
