Heading on PS and other attachments

Heading on PS and other attachments
« on: October 21, 2008, 02:09:12 PM »
General question here...When you attach your personal statement, resume etc:

1) Should I just title the things 'Personal Statement', 'Resume', 'Optional Essay', etc, in the title prompt on LSAC website? Or should it be like "(MY NAME) Personal Statement', or does it matter?

2) On the actual .doc, what kind of a heading are you putting on your essays? Name, SSN, do you title your personal statement, etc?

Sorry if these are stupid questions, any help would be appreciated.

It doesn't matter that you put your name on the title of the attachments, since they receive everything as a PDF packet- just make sure you know what the title means, so you can know exactly what you're including in the PDF.

For your header in the document itself, though, you want to make sure to have your name and LSAC ID# on every page. I wouldn't put SSN on there- I think LSAC ID is plenty.

I just titled mine Personal Statement, and for optional essays I said something like: Optional Essay 1: Why Michigan?

good luck submitting them!
