Law School Admissions / Re: Resume for Applications.. 1 or 2 pages?
« on: October 03, 2007, 05:49:36 PM »
At this point my resume is 1 pg and a quarter.  I've tried to condense it as much as I can, deleting what I thought probably didn't have any value to the adcomms.  Got it down from 1 and two thirds of a page.  I'm just really concerned that no one will bother to look at the second page.  What's the norm? this format correct?  What needs to be changed/added/deleted?

    Full time
    Part time/Summer
    Should I separate in college and post-college activities?

Depends.  If it's fluff, get rid of the fluff.  Mine was two pages of mostly experience (10 years of professional work).
And most resumes go:

o, i have no problem with that, all mine say transmitted in green. im asking how i know when i am complete at the school, meaning that my app is done and just has to be reviewed by the school

Some schools send you a letter, others a postcard, and some email you.
It never hurts to call the school and ask though.  They don't mind...
Good luck.

Law School Admissions / Re: Accepted TODAY !!

Congrats to all!
Best of luck at school!
I was accepted to John Marshall in Chicago today!  It came in an envelope via mail and was thicker than the rejection letter I got early this summer....
This one was much better.
The first word was "Congratulations!"
I liked this one better.

The LSAC will not tell you if you are complete.  They will provide other information:
Click on the Applications tab.
Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "Application Status" link.
This will bring you to the application status, where you can see where you application is at.
The final stage that LSAC can monitor is here.  Next to your applications, you want to see the word "Transmitted" in green.
If you click on your school name, it will bring you to a slightly more detailed page.  From here, you can click on the application name (for instance, 'Spring 2008') and see exactly what was transmitted.  You can see the actual application, etc.
If you don't see "transmitted", nothing has happened.  If it's been a few days and this doesn't change, call the LSAC support folks.
Good luck!

Law School Admissions / Re: Academic Summary Report, transcript?

Thanks Ender and all.  I wish I could see it to make sure everything is correct (I don't particularly suspect any problems, but I am generally paranoid about all things law school application related).  :D

If you are concerned about it, you can contact your school(s) and request an unofficial transcript.  That will give you an idea of what the schools are seeing.  If you are on campus, you can pick one up for review.

Good luck!
