Did anyone else receive an email from Cadwalader requesting transcripts? Did everyone get this email?

Should we wait for spring grades before sending this information?

Yes, you should definitely do that. I know they said they want the transcript by this Friday, but they are just trying to filter out the free thinkers from the drones who do what they are told. Be a unique butterfly!

Did anyone's resume get messed up in the online conversion process to PDF? I noticed after I submitted my bids that the process stripped away some spaces, creating a clearly visible typo. Later, while I was creating new resumes for the resume collections, I noticed that a .docx file would cause some problems but a .doc file would not.

Nothing you can do about it now.

Yeah, but it's very disappointing. I spent a lot of time creating a nice resume and it's such a letdown that the conversion process messed it up. I just hope that the strengths of my background can overcome the typo. I feel like missing out on the patent fair b/c of a typo generated by the website would be quite a setback in this economy.
