    I have been just printing my responses, cutting them out and pasting them to the applications....just wondering if anyone else has adopted my messy technique.

    if you mean cutting them from a word processor like MS Word and pasting them into the web-based secondaries (i.e.-Jefferson, CWRU, Dartmouth), then yes, that's exactly what I'm doing. No need to retype them - just cut and paste away.

    Now if you mean typing them out, printing them, physically cutting the essays from the printed page with a pair of scissors and pasting them to your computer screen with, say, Elmer's glue....then sortof. I'm only doing that with Duke's secondary, and only after eating a lot of the glue.

    Bafanculo, you can also just print directly onto the application. It looks much neater, but one must tread cautiously when using this method as the printer may decide to seek revenge at that particular moment. But, to answer you question, yes, a few people do cut and paste like we did back in kindergarten. I prefer to print directly onto the application...I hate dealing w/ glue (Actually I love peeling off the glue remnants from my hands.). :)

    why are you doing it this way??? it's so much more efficient to do it directly into the application. :confused: am i missing something here??

    Perhaps this person has a reason he/she is doing this.
