Electronic only or mail in resume?

Electronic only or mail in resume?
« on: November 12, 2005, 11:11:05 AM »
Anna Ivey's book says that LSAC discards formatting when submitting resumes online.  Is here book a little outdated?  When I submit my resume LSAC produces a pdf which is what I assume they will send to schools.  The PDF has all the formatting.

Anyway, wondering if we are still supposed to follow her advice and mail in any papers that have special formatting.

I think she is both right and wrong.  Some people have had serious issues with the formatting, but if yours worked out fine then go with it.  No need to send it by paper if the electronic thing works out for you.

Yeah, I think that was prior to the checks & balances (especially recent ones) installed by LSAC to try to avoid these problems. If you check out your app online, and it looks good, I wouldn't double submit.

Just my .02...
