Resend resume?

Postby FlamingCow » Fri Nov 12, 2010 5:14 pm

I mistyped the number of semesters I was on the Dean's List (I put one too few) on my resume for one of my applications. Is it worth sending in an updated resume, or am I being neurotic?

Won't hurt. I did the same just a few days ago with another law school for my resume by just emailing them and they were pretty nice about it.

It wouldn't be counterproductive to email the school saying, "Hey guys. I just went complete last night, but here's another resume for you. I promise I can actually count."?

I wouldn't worry about it. Dean's list is solely GPA based anyway right, and your GPA speaks for itself.

I left out "interests" on one of mine, hopefully will be able to resubmit it...didn't realize until I read around this forum that most people include it : (

Do schools get an actual copy of your transcript, or just LSAC's version? If they just get the LSAC one in the original report, I probably won't bother.

Pretty sure just LSAC

I specifically didn't include that. I always thought it was corny.

Hot shit. I won't worry about it then, as the LSAC version just lists "academic honors" and the given academic year.

Nope, pretty sure they get an actual copy.

I thought so too, but I would guess that it's a "fun" thing for the ad-coms to read and can't hurt.

I would never do it on a resume for a job app, though.

After further thought- I guess they have to to see your course load.

Still wouldn't worry about it though, I can't see adcomms counting how many times you made Dean's list, idk.
