Application Questions

Post by abcde12345 » Fri Sep 14, 2012 9:54 am

1. Some applications have a place to list employment, including internships and extracurriculars. This seems redundant, since we have to submit a resume. Is this part of the application necessary or recommended? Should I fill it out?

2. Should I list my parents on applications that do not require it?

3. Should I allow schools to email me if I'm admitted? Does it look bad if I don't allow them?

Thanks

I have an additional question. If a school (i.e. Chicago) asks where else you are applying, should you put it?

Don't lie - but feel free to change your mind after submitting your application

Definitely don't lie; I'm not sure if it's better to fill it out or leave it blank...

Lol, that is quite clever. But certainly they would be able to see I was lying from my numbers (if I get a certain LSAT score, that is).

That's a very helpful link. According to that post, one should leave it blank if it isn't mandatory. Chicago's isn't mandatory, so that's what I'll be doing.
