I'm still in UG, so really no serious interviews coming up for me yet (junior here). But kind of just curious about this topic for law job interviews, since I'm researching law school and legal work.
I know interviews are very important and particularly in biglaw there's a lot of emphasis placed on being presentable to potential clients (so I've read). I'm wondering if bad acne could really hurt a person in a law job interview? If you have a great transcript and great personality, but suffer from acne, will that come off poorly and hurt you? Would it even be worth explaining to the interviewer? It can be embarassing.
My chronic bad acne is from high school and hasn't really gone away even with treatment. It's gotten better, but I still have it and during bad periods it can look quite bad.
0Ls, please read and pay attention to the following:

It's called "Ask a Law Student", and it's a place for 0Ls to ask current law students questions without disturbing the "Students and Graduates" forums. Post all your questions there, including about things like classes, grades, transferring, employment, etc. Please do not continue posting your questions here in the Students and Graduates forums, as doing so might get you banned and/or your thread locked.
Thank you for your understanding.
In light of the above, this thread will now be moved to the "Ask a Law Student" forum.
