Education Section of Resume? Help

Postby MidwestLgl » Tue Jun 28, 2016 1:05 pm

I was accepted as a transfer student and need to upload my resume on the new school's symplicity page before the OCI deadline. What is appropriate for a transfer student to put in the education section?

List the new school on top with only the anticipated graduation date and leave my former school's information the same?

Most schools have policies on the resume. Ask your CSO, OP. CLS, for example, doesn't allow people to put their GPA on their resume. You can put your class rank on it though for your transfer school.

Also, I generally recommend people not remove the 1L school until they have began their first post-graduate job. You shouldn't send any resume as a law student without including your 1L school
