What Harvard looks for in a resume

Postby icon13 » Mon May 09, 2011 10:38 pm

Found this link and I thought it might be helpful in figuring out how Harvard likes resumes. I know its for Harvard Law students, but I'm sure it could be applicable to an admissions resume. Just thought I would share it with TLS.

Good reference. Unfortunately, my resume will never say Harvard Law School on it. :(

I'm more interested in seeing HBS resumes. I saw Wharton ones awhile ago and they were jaw-dropping.

Oh my god, did they have a watermark? Or subtle off-white coloring? Or a tasteful thickness?
