Small spacing error on final application... freaking out

Postby abovethelaw » Sun Nov 24, 2013 1:25 am

I just submitted a few apps, and after looking at the pdf version that gets generated, I noticed a spacing error on my résumé (basically two sections got stuck together as one block with no space between them). Is something as small as this even worth calling the schools about, or is it better to ensure complete perfection?

I wouldn't worry about it. i've heard many admissions committees view your app online anyways :)

It's early enough in the cycle that you can still apply to other schools.

On a serious note... You NEED to hack the LSAC database and undo this mistake or you are doomed. You might also have to hack all the schools you applied to since they have already received it. Film the results, good luck.

It might not look good, but contacting the schools to replace it with a different resume looks much worse, so there's nothing you can do about it unless you legitimately accomplish something that justifies submitting a new resume (get a promotion, win an award, get your degree, etc.)

People have gotten into T14s after putting the wrong law school in their personal statement. A spacing error won't hurt you as long as the rest of your application is okay.
