Of course, as a 0L, I'm only talking non-law, so maybe there is a huge difference there.
I'd get it down to two, and call it good, with all the best stuff on page 1.
OCI resumes are required to be one page and as far as I can tell even when applying for jobs outside OCI it should only be one page. Applying for jobs in the legal field is not like applying to anything before I got here, there are basically different rules.
To get mine down, I only put the most meaningful employment I have had, and I eliminated certain descriptions of what I did in order to get it down. Basically, ask yourself what are the most important/impressive things on this resume? Leave those. It was tough, I had 8 years prof experience, but I am happy with my final result.
