Question About Resumes / Accolades

Postby Klinklang » Wed Jul 20, 2011 7:55 pm

I have a quick question about my resume/list of accolades (hoping this is the right forum lol). Anyway, I don't have any work experience, but I do have a list of ten or so academic accolades (UG moot court credentials and scholarships, mostly). How do I go about letting law schools know about these during the application process? Is there a separate CAS form for resumes, and if so, is it okay that it won't include any actual employment? Thanks! :mrgreen:

There's a section for academic awards and honors on most applications. And you can put them on your resume and include that in your app package.

The resume's just an extra document that you'll attach to most applications - no special form. And yea, that's resume fodder. Especially if you don't have WE - you still need to fill up a page, so you might have to stretch those accolades out if you really don't have any WE (or ECs).

You've never had a job in your life?

Not for about three years. I'm nineteen, and my summers have either been for school or my mother's health.

Just one of many questions on the process. Thx all.
