HELP! mistake on application

Postby chrislee012 » Fri Jan 04, 2013 2:41 pm

So, i was doing my applications last night, and i realized the attached resume of my LSAT had a typo. On my resume it says my score is 2 points lower than what i received on my actual LSAT grade. The applications have all been sent, and i am afraid the schools will err and maybe look at the LSAT on the resume. Should I contact the schools? Or am i freaking out for no reason. Gosh i hate the admissions process, mainly bc i am just so out of it these days. I thank you in advance for any advice and consideration. This forum and its users are the best

You put your LSAT score on your résumé? wut?

Or are you talking about that page on the online application where you have to enter in all past scores? Either way, I wouldn't worry about it. LSAC will report your scores to them.

This.
If it's on law school applications, they'll get your right number; if it's on an actual resume, they won't care about your score, though they might ding you for being the kind of douche that puts an LSAT score on a resume

thanks for the advice everyone. makes me feel better in a sense, but also like a fool for not looking into the resume requirements/ideal requirements more carefully. hopefully it wont affect my acceptance.. thank you

Sorry, I meant to say resume for a job. For school it's perfectly acceptable

It's probably fine like dingbat says, but I've never seen anyone do it before (Harvard has sample resumes of admitted students on their website, and even these apps with probably-stellar numbers don't write their LSAT scores). I'm surprised that someone would recommend that you do such a thing in an actual class...

Anyway, don't fret over it - I realized after I sent my app off to Penn that I had a grammatical error on my "Why Penn?" optional essay but I still got in. :mrgreen:

I'm fairly certain I got dinged at Penn due to family issues
(my brother dropped out after freshman year and my cousin, who's an insufferable douche, had just had a fellowship)

Thanks guys. My worry was just that adcomms are human too, and seeing that number on the resume might lead them to forgetting my real last score.
