Re: More spacing or more content for K-JD resume?

If they're telling you to remove some stuff, it's probably too cramped. I remember how hard it was to remove stuff from my resume, but you don't want it too be squeezed and cluttered. You don't need to remove everything they're suggesting you remove, but try to consider why you feel like it needs t...

Re: More spacing or more content for K-JD resume?

I see no problem with a resume that just has activities related to law school and post law school . I'm weird and will completely defer to blueapple. :D But personally for me, I don't care what you did in college. I don't care all that much if you worked summers (more impressive if you worked full-...

I'll just add that there are states which will allow you to waive in without taking the bar after you have been practicing for a certain amount of time (3-5 years, u...
