Resume

Postby Just » Sat Aug 04, 2012 12:02 pm

If a resume is not on the school's checklist, should we still submit one?
Is one page the customary standard? How detailed should it be? Is it okay if I just list items without descriptions?
Thanks!

1) depends, if its Yale where they ask you to list your employment things, then a resume is optional. Generally, if they dont ask you employment info, go ahead and add one as an optional supplement

2) One page is standard

3) Usually you should list a sentence or two describing the activity

If there is space for optional attachments, you can add a resume there. But you usually provide all the information on your resume in answering the application questions, which is why some schools don't ask for them. I would only add a resume in those cases if there is information on it you haven't already provided.

The resume should be one page, and should include brief descriptions of significant items (jobs, important awards, etc cetera).
