Blank Page?????

Postby HyeMart » Mon Nov 01, 2010 3:21 pm

Hey, I'm about to send an application in, and I noticed its PS-->resume-->blank page--> DS -->addendum

Whats up with the blank page (my headings arnt on it, so its not that my resume has 2 pages), is that normal? (its georgetown btw)

Ignore it. LSAC PDF conversion has bugs.

You too! Just make sure the rest of your word docs converted properly.

I don't think it's a bug, I think they do it on purpose to put some separation in the file.

btw, the blank page in between doesn't say "This page in intentionality left blank" like other applications just "This a blank page." This has been after I post my resume on all my apps. It is one page in the original doc.

It only does it sometimes. It should be consistent if served as a page break.

I have a theory that it is used to create an even number of pages. However, I have no idea if that's actually true or why they'd do that. It was just true on one of my apps.

I just figured it was different school's preferences.

I tried to load different attachments and the blank page shows up at different times. Just to clarify, it is not the blank page between applications or application attachments. It is a blank page(s) that are added for no apparently reason some times, after some attachments. I have loaded the same attachments to the same app in the same order but got different results (sometime with blank page, sometime not).
