Thanks for updating us on that! Added that to the OP in case anyone else ends up wondering about it!
Are you a k-jd? I'm 5 years out of school so fitting my info into one page will be tough. Just wondering if there's a 1pg max for people who've been out for a while...
Kind of - I graduated a year early to go to my M.A. program and then will be straight into my JD. I asked her about fitting all my research on there + publications + my two schools and she said basically cut out clubs, descriptions, research that's not relevant and that firms won't even read it if it's over a page/they won't send it out
Thanks for the heads up. Although now I'm worried that I won't be competitive since my resume is so clearly PI focused.
I really think, as people upthread have suggested, School prestige + location + GPA + LSAT matters. I know people say LSAT doesn't, but I feel like if firms see the LSAT and GPA, they'd be more likely to choose top numbers. Past threads mentioned a t14 and even t6 school matters more than anything else.
I wouldn't worry. I have a lot of PI/international stuff that's not corporate at all too.
