Maybe I’m a little slow here. But how exactly would you have to write off all the work done to “prepare for filing a lawsuit” (I’m assuming drafting a complaint?) if you’re bringing arbitration? Arbitrations don’t require pleadings in your jurisdiction?

On ApplicantLab, the coach goes on quite a bit about having a lot of white space on your resume (easy on the eyes), etc etc. This is totally wrong, right? Ive explicitly a Wharton admissions officer say to use margins to your advantage (pack more stuff in) and have seen an application guide at an MBB, where the resume templates include very little white space. Obviously every word should be valuable, but just wanted to check my sanity here since AppLab offers good advice elsewhere.
