When you submit a resume...

Postby dreamflower » Mon Nov 07, 2011 7:48 pm

When you submit a resume should you include your LSAC number on it?

Every page that you submit (PS, DS, Resume, Why X, Addendum, Yale's 250, etc) should have your name and LSAC number on it in the header or footer (wherever it is most appropriate). If a document is more than one page (ie PS), then it should also include page numbers (page 1 of 2) etc.

I put my identifying info, including LSAC number, on everything. And numbered pages of mulitpage essays (1 of 2, etc.) I figured if a page falls out of my folder onto the floor, I want them to be able to figure out where it belongs without any effort.

After working in an admissions office (UG) that is very very very important. I dropped a couple folders during my time :wink:

danget. Where did they say this?

AHHHH all my apps are the same, except for GW, I think, which specified a LSAC number for the PS header. :!: :o :(


I don't think "they" (as in the law schools themselves) say that specifically (but someone correct me if I'm wrong, it's been a year). But the labeling of every page is pretty standard advice on TLS.

A couple places specifically request it. I only did it because I saw someone on TLS talking about it, but it makes sense and makes it look a bit more spiffy.

A lot of schools request that you put your LSAC # on any additional document attached to your application.
