Header, Format, and Title Questions

Postby mikel5400 » Fri Jan 27, 2012 10:51 pm

Hi,

I appreciate information for several quick questions.

-For the personal statement / resume / diversity statement - what should I put in the "description" box located after a document is uploaded.

-What should I put on the diversity and personal statements in the header (name, lsac #, and personal statement for ____ law school - one in the left / center / right)?

-If the document is less than 2 double spaced pages, should I change the 11 font to 11.25 or 11.5?

Thanks so much.

Description Box: Schools can't see this. You can use shorthand or whatever. I used something like PS, DS, Resume, etc.

You can save the document to your LSAC account if you are uploading to multiple schools. So if you are going to do that, make sure that you name it appropriately. (For instance, if you have different conduct addendums based on what the schools asked, make sure you use something so you can tell which is which. Or for a school-specific PS, you should use something like PS-NU or whatever.)

Header/Title: Make sure that your name and LSAC number appear at the top of every page. I just titled each document as generically as possible (i.e. Personal Statement) and centered it. My thought is why remind law schools that you are applying to a bunch of other schools. I saved the documents on my computer with the school names though.

Font: If you can fit 11.5 pt font or even 12 pt font, go for it. Easy to read it always good.

HTH!
