Clerkship App question

Postby AttractiveNuisance » Sun Mar 28, 2010 10:39 pm

I promise not to spam the forum with any more of these app questions, but I am over-anxious about these since it's going to be so competitive for state supremes. My application I am sending is around 20 pages (10 page writing sample, transcripts, etc.) and I am wondering which of the documents I should put on resume paper or if I should put it all on resume paper. I don't really care one way or another, I just don't want the app to be funky. I know this is the dumbest thing to worry about, but does anyone have any input?

Personally, I would print it all on plain white paper that is slightly thicker than usual. Something that says 'I didn't print this on copy paper' but also 'I'm not trying to impress you by sending my application in on dried sheep skin'. The content is really all that matters, and I think going overboard on the paper is somewhere between unnecessary and a mistake.

Yea, those were my concerns. So you'd suggest doing it all on one kind of nicer paper and not doing some on resume (resume, cover letter, and first page of writing sample) and some on regular?

That's what I did, too.
