In order to build a competitive resume outside of the classroom, students should take advantage of opportunities available both at Cleveland State University and in the surrounding community. Most competitive candidates gain exposure to their field through shadowing and volunteer work within the law field and at relevant organizations. ​


Students are also encouraged to join organizations they have a strong passion for including social justice, environmental, health and other affinity groups like fraternities and sororities. Students can also join one of many pre-professional student organizations at CSU.


Students should make sure that their grades are the top priority, but beyond that, engaging in activities to build their resume is another way to build a competitive application. Students should not take on too many activities to the detriment of their GPA, but should evaluate what they can add onto their schedule that will be beneficial to their future.
