Harvard

Postby lawschoolboundfuture » Mon Sep 10, 2012 8:32 am

Harvard's app just came out. It has this question: "1. Briefly describe any written work you’ve produced (e.g., college-level or higher papers, articles, theses, etc., with multiple revisions in response to feedback) under the supervision of an academic advisor or professional editor. (maximum characters 300)"

What are people talking about in this?

It sounds to me like they're talking about major research papers, theses, and published academic-type work.

I haven't taken my LSAT yet, but I am planning to apply. I will talk about a nanochemistry publication that I had from my undergraduate research.

Would this include speeches/remarks for public figures?

IMO that seems to be the essential filter: multiple back-and-forths either with an professional editor or someone in academia

also, 300 characters is quite limited, so even with a condensed citation, I think you're down to maybe 3 to 4 things? picking selectively might be crucial.

You did the project in an academic context. The TA advised you. I say mention it.

Seconded. Go for it.
