Quick writing sample question...

Postby stephencolbert » Tue Jul 31, 2012 1:18 am

I don't have time to edit my writing sample down from 15 pages to 10. Can I just submit the first 10 pages? Or will firms think it sucks if it doesn't have a complete analysis section and a conclusion? Thanks!

You just put "section omitted" to cut it down.

Do I have to omit a middle section and leave the conclusion in it? Or can I just write "Section Omitted" when it reaches the end of the 10th page?

Thanks.

My OCS suggested taking just the best section (in a brief, typically the argument, generally 5 to 8 pages) and then including a brief description, addressing that it is one section of a brief written for blah blah blah and giving a context (relevant fact summary) for the argument.
