"List ALL educational institutions attended" ...?

Postby InterLaw » Fri Sep 15, 2017 4:01 pm

Does this question in every application mean that we have to mention even elementary / middle / high school?

Thanks!

Not sure about the above. At least for some apps they only let you input undergrad or undergrad and highschool. If they don't specify, then put everything though!:)

It's referring to colleges/universities. For the think tank, I would list if you receive a certificate and note (if allowed) that it was a non-credit program.

Even for C&F? Harvard asks about sanctions for all educational institutions.

The bar only looks 10 years back on work history. I don't think they care about that time you pushed a kid in 3rd grade.

For institutions attended, it's referring to post-high school. For discipline issues, it likely just goes back to high school...use common sense, and if in doubt, ask an adcom.

I get the point, but I was suspended from school, so it was more serious than a basic detention.

I've been assuming educational institutions means undergrad. One T14 app, I can't recall which, didn't allow me to save the section without mentioning high school, so now that comes up by default whenever I fill out that section on a new app

This. But be sure to double check each application individually because your 'High School' listing from another school's application may roll over into an 'Other' category or even 'Undergraduate' if that specific application doesn't have space for a high school institution. If there's no space specifically for high school I don't think you need to list it.

I think it was Duke that won't let you save the section without adding high school info, that was the first app I filled out and mine did the same thing.
