No way around it, this is really bad. My attorneys hone in on typos and this can really tank a resume. It doesn't matter how small it is, your resume is your first (and sometimes only) shot at making an impression. Any typo at all sends the message that you don't pay attention to tiny details - which is at the core of being a lawyer. Hate to be so harsh on this, but your resume must be letter perfect.
Yikes. Not the most pleasant thing to hear. Thanks for answering though.
Does it change at all if I am at the top of my class + LR? Would they weigh my typo less or will they just chuck it out just like any other resume?
