MS Word formatting/uploading to LSAC

Post by HellOnHeels » Thu Nov 10, 2011 7:29 pm

I recently realized that when I upload my .doc file of my resume to LSAC, it seems to lose some of the formatting. Nothing I can do about schools I've already submitted to, but how to I fix this for schools I've not yet applied to?

I've tried saving it as a .htm and a .rtf, and the same thing happens. :?:

I had a similar issue; changing the file type to .docx resolved the problem for me.

I had a similar problem. I put the dates on the far right (i.e. Summer 2007 OR May 2009-Present) in a TABLE so that the formatting remained constant. Seemed to work for me - also saved mine as .docx

Wish we could safe in PDF and then it for sure wouldn't get messed up :)
