Buggy app system is buggy. Just redo it. Or delete app and try starting it up again to see if the info is imported.

took a look at it, and is RANK important? i have no idea what my rank was.

also. i just checked the academic summary report and supposedly i received academic honors in my last year.
im guessing its one of those awards sent out to anyone who receives above a certain GPA. would we list this in the academic achievements box in the bottom?

thanks

No rank is not listed as a necessary component. Many schools don't release that info anyway.

Might as well. Do a little bit of research on it (probably will take 5 seconds) and add a description to it (e.g., awarded to students who earn a 3.5GPA or higher). I believe the apps ask for a description.

I know that if you select undergraduate it'll have a series of dropdown boxes where (I believe) you select state, and then the university/college that you attended. That should be sufficient.

If it's for high school (I know that a few of them still have that there), I just went ahead and listed the name of the institution (e.g., East LA High School).

what? high school?! i guess techinically it is an institution we attended but i didnt even think about adding that in there.

so all you're doing is adding in the university name, not the specific name of the college. i see.

Most (or all) law schools don't care about high school at all. But, since a few of them still had that option available, I went ahead and filled it out to cover my bases.
