Question about Electronic Apps.
« on: October 05, 2007, 12:32:29 PM »
This is a very dumb question, but I really don't know the answer. On many electronic apps (through LSDAS) a law school will ask something and then provide two or three lines to fill in an answer (specifically, I'm talking about questions that don't say "you may attach a seperate sheet of paper," etc.). I noticed that if you keep typing there seems to be no limit to the lines available. So my question is, do the first two/three lines contain the only material that can be viewed after submission?

When you finish your application, LSAC converts the document to a PDF. You get to preview that PDF before you send it off. The PDF shows exactly what the law schools will see.

Generally, the PDF only shows as much as you see in the application editing screen. You need to make it fit, or use a separate sheet.

One more question relating to the last one. For scholarships/honor societies, did you explain them in any detail (in terms of prestige/criteria)?

Not in detail, but in two or three word quips.  They can be decribed with a bit more depth on your CV.
