Do I need to put both universities attended on my 0L resume?

Postby LittleTree » Sun Jul 22, 2012 11:39 am

Applying next cycle. I started at one university but only for a semester and then finished my undergrad at another. I would prefer if I didn't include that on my resume because it takes up more space. I'll have to let them know anyways because I was out of school for more than 6 months and they'll see both transcripts on my Academic Summary Report.

There are no requirements for a resume, you can put whatever you want on there as long as it is true.

It only takes up a line or two, and if they're going to see it anyways, why would you not list it?

Your LSDAS will show all places attended (even if no credit awarded) so as long as you know that, word the resume part however you think is best. Just know they will see it on the transcripts.
