3L OCI (I know, I know) resume for 2L transfer

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Jul 09, 2011 10:37 am

There are a handful of firms doing 3L OCI at my school, so I'm fixing my resume up in case I get no offered by my SA (knock on all kinds of wood this doesn't happen!) I transferred last summer, do we think I need to put my 1L school on the resume still? They'll see "transfer grades" on my transcript at this point.

I'm pretty sure that putting it on there is standard procedure. All of my friends who transferred into Boalt still have their old law schools on there. Employers want to know every law school you attended. It almost seems deceptive to not include it.

People come out differently on this question, but I firmly believe that leaving your 1L school off your resume is really deceptive; particularly if you are putting your GPA/Rank at your new school on the resume.

Leaving it alone then. I'm not trying to deceive anyone, I just wasn't sure at what point it becomes unimportant. Should I leave the GPA from 1L as well then?

I have my 1L school as a bullet under my new school: "Completed first-year studies at [XX] in the top xx%] of the class"

I left my grades and rank out but left my honors awards and stuff like that on it.
