Printing Application

Postby CoolerHandGreg » Tue Dec 19, 2017 1:48 pm

Has anyone had an issue with printing our the preview of their application? When I print from Firefox, some of the text from my personal statement comes out in a different font. When I print from chrome, there's no problem.

I called LSAC tech support but they don't have a solution. I don't want law schools to print my app and have it coming out looking funky. I verified all formatting was correct and re-uploaded in PDF format instead of .docx. Same result. Chrome is fine, Firefox is not. No difference whether I use Mac or PC.

I really doubt adcomms are using Firefox.

I am also surprised I haven't been able to find anything about this on any forums - I would think it would have happened to someone else by now

You really shouldn't be that surprised. Even if someone else was neurotic enough to check the printing differences between two different browsers, they likely concluded that it will have literally no effect on your application.

I know that waiting is hard, but there are better ways to cope. Go read a book. Play in the park. Take up baking. Binge on Netflix. Just something that isn't this.

As someone who manages a QA team, love that you're testing on different browsers but these are like P5 defects and will have no impact whatsoever on your app.

Is the different font Papyrus? Because then it might be a problem.

It's Comic Sans. Insta-ding.
