Dealing with Unemployment
« on: December 12, 2011, 05:13:12 PM »
I have had fairly sporadic employment during my life, and have sizable gaps in my employment history; I have also been unable to find work since getting my undergraduate degree last May.  When writing the resume for law school, how should I address this, if at all?

For most schools, it won't matter a bit.  The vast majority of admissions decisions happen on LSAT and GPA, alone.  Everything else, IMHO, accounts for less than 1% of the decision.

Just be honest. They just want to see honesty. Remember n  employment or limited, still looks better than if someone wrote " 2 years as an accountant for the crypts and 4 years in Taliban as an electrician".
