.rtf or .doc?
« on: September 23, 2004, 10:29:17 AM »
for those of you submitting apps via LSACD....

are you attaching your PS, etc. as a .doc file, .rtf, or something else?  or does it really matter since they print it out anyway?

Also, what kind of "aligment" are you using for your PS?  left or justify?

I don't think it matters because it gets transmitted as an .rtf anyway.

Justify on mine.  It looks nicer.

Well if you save it as an rtf, then you cant have headers on each page (like name SS#).

hmm not sure what to do

oops, I meant .pdf.  It gets saved as a .pdf.  Definitely go for the .doc.

PDF seems like the best choice then...especialy for us non .doc users (i.e. OS X/linux)

yea, I thought .pdf would be a good way to submit, but alas, it isn't listed as one of the file types you can use.

I was told all through college not to justify my papers, so I won't do it on my PS either.
