Law School Admissions / Re: .rtf or .doc?

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.

excellent, thanks for the help!

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  :-\)

Law School Admissions / .rtf or .doc?

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?

thanks hoya lawya.... essay edge corrected my sentence from "returning" to "return"... but returning sounded correct to me.

Anyone else?

"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?"

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Application Question

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)?

The school you applied to won't request your app. from LSAC until Oct. 1, so you're fine.


During my last 4 semesters, I was going to school full time at one university, and taking independent study classes from another university (and then transferring the credits)... So, when they see my academic record, it will look like I was going to two schools.

Suggestions on how to handle this? (I had a 3.95+ GPA at both schools during this time).
