Hello Everyone,

How long should law school application resumes be? Do they want concise 1-page professional ones, or multipage "activity dump" ones filled with every minute detail of your undergrad activities?

Riser 38,

The law school admissions resume should be no longer than one-page, unless you are an unconventional applicant with extensive professional experience, shifting careers toward a career in law.  Moreover, the admissions resume should feature your academic achievements, and be constructed as a Curriculum Vitae instead of a professional resume, showcasing your academic promise, extracurricular involvement, and honors. 

Please contact me directly if you need help with constructing a CV, or for samples.
