Law school applications: Resume advise/ tips?

Postby frustrated3 » Mon Dec 13, 2010 4:38 pm

Hi all,
Does anybody have any idea how important resumes are in the admissions process?

I am really struggling with what is "relevant" in a law school application resume. :? Anybody with advise? sample to share?

Wrong forum, but I'm sure a mod will move this eventually.

What to include:
Where you went to college
Extracurricular activities (this includes sports)
Academic honors
Professional experience

What to exclude:
Where you went to high school
All of those shitty jobs (McDonalds and the like)*

*UNLESS you are looking for filler and you want to show that working while you were in college may have affected your GPA.
