Yale 4-12 questions

Postby HopefulFish » Thu Oct 28, 2010 9:30 pm

Applicants are asked to provide on separate attachments responses to 8 questions. If wan applicant replies yes to all, that's 8 responses.

So perhaps the obvious question is, do we attach 8 different sheets for these short answer questions, or condense them into 1-page list?

I fit everything onto the same sheet. You can always email them.

I simply re-typed each short answer question into a Word doc, and answered each one underneath the question itself. Came out to just over three pages. I appended my personal statement, 250, and resume to the app separately.

I posted this last cycle. Honestly whether you put your answers on one sheet or 8 does not matter.

Here is what matters:

1. Get a 3.9+ GPA
2. Score a 175+ on the LSAT
3. Know how to write well

And then do at least two of the following (more if you falter at the above requirements):

1. Learn a foreign language or three
2. Notch some sort of spectacular athletic achievement (Iron Man triathlon, sail solo across the globe, bronze or better at the Olympics, etc.)
3. Serve a few years in the military
4. Publish a novel or a groundbreaking academic article
5. Have a few patents to your name
6. Engage in antiquated and preferably dangerous hobbies (trapeze artist, fire juggler, sword swallower, smoke signaler)
7. Master an unusual instrument (didgeridoo, lute, gong)
8. Win multiple days on Jeopardy (only one day is TTT)
9. Escape from totalitarian third world country where you were prosecuted for human rights efforts or political beliefs. Escape must be elaborate (hiding in coffin or trunk of car, donning disguise, digging tunnel, etc.)
10. Walk on the moon. (International Space Station is TTT).

OP, you should be fine if you put it on one sheet and clearly number/label them
