I can't believe nobody has called out the OP on his inability to properly quote somebody. Response goes after the quote ivy-leaguer.

Mathis wrote:One of the best books I've read on law school admissions is "The Ivey Guide to Law School Admissions" by Anna Ivey, former Dean of Admissions at Chicago, I think. There is an excellent section on resumes where she gives you example before and after resumes. She focuses on format and content for people with lots of work experience, as well as those with not so much.

You clearly have been doing a lot of significant work and that can and should be conveyed on your resume.

You may also want to write an addendum to your application to further explain your choice to work for yourself for the past three years.

I'm a "douche bag" because I'm trying to explain how to properly post here? You're not going to get a lot of helpful comments when you call 1/2 the respondents here "douche bags".

UPenn for physics? If you could get into UPenn you could have gone to a better school for that subject. Like UIUC!

And the 2.8 can be explained by Xbox and JOing.


DF is a fellow UIUCer? Who could have guessed. I worked for EE, but I stayed the hell away from their hard-ass classes. I mean damn.

ok Jimmy J, I PM'd with you for a little while and honestly tried to help you but you can't go calling everyone a douche bag who responds with any type of negativity in their post. This is also a free forum so just because you put "serious responses only" in your thread title, it does not mean people will only post serious responses. It actually is more likely to have the opposite effect.

Anyways, if you want to not be universally hated on TLS then start acting with a little more grace and you actually might get some useful information from this site. It could come be very handy for you because although you have outstanding numbers your 3 year gap may be looked down upon by the top 3 and you'll need to make sure you have a strong addendum and a strong overall app to get in.

I pronounced it J-oh-ing so that is why I wrote it that way. But you are probably right.

No way you can write a personal statement that won't alienate everyone who reads it.

James,

You really should not be worried about your lack of employment the past 3 years. This resume flaw is easily concealed by stating you started your own financial consulting practice - this is essentially what you were doing. With the numbers you mentioned, you really shouldn't have any problems getting into the top 10 law school.

On another note, I was hesitant to respond to your question only because of the original title of your post. If you truly believe any non Ivy leaguer's opinion is not worthy of consideration then the disrespect you've received is well deserved. Perhaps you cannot help the fact that you are the one coming across as the immature douche bag on this site, because all you've really have done the past three years is sit around with your thumb up your ass. Perhaps you should work on your social skills first before you apply to law school.

By the way, if you really are the person you appear to be, you really don't have friends, trust me.

Anyways hope my resume advice helped.
