CV vs. Resume?

Postby Gymnast0206 » Sun Oct 02, 2011 9:31 pm

Just looking for some input.

Some schools ask for a resume and some schools list resume/CV. I'm wondering how many pages one should aim for on each of them? While a few of the schools provide page requirements, most of the ones I'm applying to don't specify.

I'm assuming resume, one page. But, the CV? Not so sure.

Ideally 1 and it shouldn't be longer than 2. Remember that admissions people have to read thousands of applications and they will skim your resume at best.
