Screwed up resume

Postby nextstep222 » Thu Jan 17, 2013 1:26 am

Hey, all --

I have no idea where I got it into my head that the law school resume could be more than a page (i.e. didn't need to be standard, page-long. employment formatting -- that you were encouraged to make it BETWEEN one and two), but when I submitted my resume that's exactly what I did and I made it about two pages. Please don't flame, but is this the worst? I'm applying straight from undergrad, and my resume already fits on a page, but I made it longer so that I could increase the font/give it more white space/add the information schools wanted (like hours per week, awards, things like that), but really just because I thought that was the convention.

Some of my applications have just completed, so I was thinking of calling and saying, I sent a misformatted resume and want to correct it -- overkill, or worth it?

For law school? Yeah it's not that big a deal.
