How do I quote text with bullet points?

If this is for a class, I would also recommend checking with your teacher or professor to see if he or she has any preferences.

Here's something from one of my own articles:
Anyone. Are you:
· At least 18 years old?
· A citizen?
· Having your paycheck direct deposited into your checking account?
I'd just quote the material as normal within my text, like this:
According to a reliable source within the company, one should be able to answer the following questions: Are you...
"· At least 18 years old?
· A citizen?
· Having your paycheck direct deposited into your checking account?"
The quotes look a little awkward, but it's perfectly acceptable. Especially if you intend to cite the entire list.
But as I said, I have an aversion to quoting lists in this manner. I'd more likely do something like this.
According to a reliable source at the company, one's chances of getting accepted are greater if you are:
· 18 years old
· A citizen of the United States
· Have a job
· Your paycheck is direct deposited to your checking account
I just think it looks cleaner.
