If I were to have a "publications" section on my resume with op-ed pieces, is there a chance adcoms would actually read those pieces? Would listing those on my resume give me a boost? Caveat: the one op-ed I care about showcases my interest in the environment and also discusses a unique experience, but it also mentions an illegal act (trespassing onto a heavily guarded mountain top removal site and documenting the site). So, I'm not sure if this would hurt or help in the end? Super cool experience, though. I actually thought about using it for my PS and discussing my interest in environmental law.
There is a slight chance that someone will take a look - it is quite small though. As long as you are fully disclosing anything necessary (if you didn't get caught there is nothing to disclose) there is nothing to worry about it. Sounds like it could make for a pretty interesting PS!
