Putting secondary journal on transfer application

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Jun 11, 2015 12:21 pm

I'm at a T2 and I graded onto the second best journal at my school behind our law review - should I put this on my resume when applying to transfer?

Thanks everyone

I'd only put "X Law School Journal of Space Law (Invited)".

Just don't make it seem like you've actually spent time on the journal, because you haven't. It may be beneficial because some schools don't have grade on, and if they're unfamiliar with your school they may mistakenly attribute good writing skills as the reason you made the journal.
