Which schools require you to list your high school?

Postby milkandcheerios » Fri Dec 20, 2013 5:28 pm

I'm filling out my apps and I'm confused as to which schools, if any, require you to post your high school info. (if it matters, I'm blanketing the t-14 plus USC/UCLA)

I haven't seen anything specifically asking about high school yet. I just called the CLS admissions office and I was told not to include my high school, but on the CLS app, it won't let me complete the education section unless I put in high school information.

Does anyone else have any insights on which schools require HS info? what should I do about CLS in particular because I seem to have gotten conflicting/inaccurate info.

I know a few in the group you mentioned did. UCLA did if I recall correctly.

It really does not matter at all. If you have to fill it out to get past a school's electronic application guantlet, just do it. Even with Columbia. It will not cause them to rage reject you. It will just be ignored like every other part besides LSAT and GPA and maybe your resume.

So don't worry about it. Good luck!

Read the instructions.
If they don't say it, and you don't want to list your highschool, don't.

If the application needs the highschool, it will return you to the top of the page and tell you to fill it in.
If the application doesn't need the highschool, it will let you pass.

If providing your highschool information will reflect favorably for you (in however way) then go ahead and just fill it out.

Honestly even on the applications that asked for highschool data, I just put N/A in the GPA and Class rank because I was too lazy to go look it up. Was top 5% in HS so not like I was trying to hide anything. Highschool info is a stupid thing to ask for so just put it when they ask and if they don't don't bother.
