How much would a weak resume hurt my application? Further, I don't have much work experience - only worked as a telemarketer for the Bank of America. My EC's are slim to none as well. The simple solution is to 'get involved,' I know.. and I'm trying to do that as much as possible this year by joining a club as well as the debate team...

Numbers, target schools?

How long did you work as a telemarketer for B of A? Also, don't get too involved, it isn't worth sacrificing even a little bit of your GPA or potential LSAT score.

If you have above median numbers it won't matter at all really. If you have below median numbers it becomes more important, although if you are significantly blow both it again doesn't matter. I should make a bell curve graph to illustrate this point.

I'd think your personal statement is probably more important than your resume.

Why did you post a picture of the Hulks penis...


Dont go too crazy with the resume. Get good numbers instead. Law schools expect some of their students to have no work experience since many apply straight from Undergraduate. If you want to beef up your resume a little do some volunteer work. Its a win win.

Good luck!
