    Hey guys, does anyone know if Skadden's open day has a word limit? There isn't anything on the form.

    I did some tests by pasting in texts of varying lengths and the application preview never cuts anything off. Given that the form does not allow for paragraph breaks, I am personally going to aim to submit a paragraph (~100 words) for legibility reasons.

    Hey! Sorry if this is a dumb q, but where is the application for the Skadden Open Day? I can't seem to find it on the Apply4Law site

    I wrote around 300 words. Most Open Day applications ask for 250-300 words so thats what I followed. Hope its not too much hahaha

    If the only application question is what do you hope to gain from this open day?, is it appropriate to talk about previous experiences if they aren't covered elsewhere on the application form?

    I think it depends what your experience is. If you have extensive legal experience, there could be a question as to how you will benefit from the open day.
