Application Questions

Postby JDin2014 » Fri Nov 05, 2010 12:02 am

So, I have a few quick questions:

1. If an application asks me to list employment, should I include unpaid internships? (Example: UCLA's application)
2. I received 4.5 units at a state school while still in high school. Since the units show up on my other transcripts, I had the state school mail in their transcript to LSAC as well - so it looks like I've attended three universities (because I transferred between two other ones). Do I need to explain the situation or is it pretty self explanatory?
3. I had a position which started off as volunteer work, then transitioned to a paid position. Should I include that under extracurricular stuff? or work? or both?
4. When asked to list activities (and the app has several lines, in paragraph form), should I just list them out? Vice president, ___ club. Treasurer, ____ organization.

Thanks!

Employment means being compensated for doing work.

No need to explain.

3. I had a position which started off as volunteer work, then transitioned to a paid position. Should I include that under extracurricular stuff? or work? or both?

I would put both, just include the right dates.

4. When asked to list activities (and the app has several lines, in paragraph form), should I just list them out? Vice president, ___ club. Treasurer, ____ organization.

You can use semicolons if you want.
