Quick Facts Question: I did a story about working on a block problem and how the lessons I learned from climbing impact other aspects of my life, including continuing my legal studies. Do you think that`s way too cheesy? Should I opt for a list more? Or do you think that would be a good way to think about it? Idk. I haven`t slept in a while. Thank you! I know that common wisdom says that if you are really interested in a school, you should fill out optional sections if necessary. I was wondering how this relates to the “Fun Facts” part of the Columbia app? Do you all think it will have a negative impact if I don`t finish it? I listed five facts and tried to make each of them humorous! I picked one and told a story. I really hope they can see my number of characters because I`ve reached the limit exactly! I think I have a hard time assessing whether this is a section where the committee wants to be blinded and charmed (i.e. proof of soft skills), or whether they just want a mnemonic device to distinguish you from other X,000 candidates. The idea is simply to talk about something interesting about yourself, which few people do. It has nothing to do with career. You might be very interested in coffee, video games, traveling, old movies. Talk about an interesting fact about yourself. Don`t give them any reason to worry or worry. As recreational drug use may not be your fun fact, although this should already be obvious to you.
I didn`t because it just means putting things that they couldn`t otherwise learn from your app. Anything worth mentioning, I have already included in my CV or essays. Could you share a little more information about your background? URM? Veterinary? Solid softs / professional experience? When you arrive at law school, don`t forget that feeling. That feeling of knowing who you are and what you have to offer the world. Imposter syndrome occurs HART in law school. Remember. I had a level 17 half-elf ranger who was killed by a mindflayer when I missed my life-saving throw. I`m sure the admissions committees think the same way about LSAT that they are literally amazing and that CLS is lucky to have you!!!!!! I`ve also heard from other applicants that this is a good place to mention other academic activities that wouldn`t be clear from your application. For example, I have a friend who is interested in Latin American politics but did not study it in college. He briefly mentioned the books he reads/the events he attends for fun in this section.

Does anyone have a clear idea of what they expect from this request? I feel like I`m too boring. Does this have to be a whimsical and fun way to respond? Bullets or paragraphs? etc. High school student here, Latinx too, and it`s an inspiration to see how successful people like you are great. I am also an immigration advocate and hope one day to practice immigration law and speak on behalf of those who cannot. Continue with the man:) Thank you for sharing your trip! Can I develop an interest or hobby that I listed at the end of my resume, or does it have to be something completely new that I didn`t answer because I discovered all my interesting feedback in other parts of my application, then I hope it`s enough that I have a related question. What if your Columbia “fun fact” is interesting and says something positive about your character, but isn`t accurate? Fun? (Because it`s a serious topic, but not depressing.) Should you include it anyway? I hope your application cycle is going well so far! I talked about my hobbies and where they took me.
For example, I love climbing, but there`s no room for that on my resume. I briefly mentioned that I love climbing and was planning a trip to Patagonia for camping/climbing. From what I`ve heard, it`s a great idea to fill that out because they`ll probably talk about it in the interview. This will give you something to say! All those who answered this question, in what form did you answer? Just listed a few hobbies/interests? Or did you pick one and develop/tell a story about it? Does anyone know if the CLS optional question is a secretly “mandatory” question? I don`t know how to answer it, so I thought maybe I could just pass it on. But if someone can tell me that not answering would have a negative effect, then I would do my best to think of something good. I chose an experiment and wrote about it. I thought it would be a good opportunity to talk about something funny and get humorous. However, I also have a list of interests listed on my resume. I AM ALSO AMAZED!!! Wow I was surprised when every app had secret questions smh Seriously lol.
Statistics? URM? Any other details? Happy for POs, but it doesn`t help without more data, so people can compare their profile to POs. Instead of panicking about the apps, I decided to channel that energy into the rush for Mythic Level Raiding content in WoW. I am sorry to hear from your ranger. I`ve always wanted to get into D&D. with law school next year, I think the ship set sail.
