Better than the girl who wanted a congressional internship and came in wearing a ruffled (no joke) suit jacket, to hand me her scented and textured resume.

I'm serious.

Not quite, but I guess that this the only thing I can liken it to. It was more like a ruffled collar...like drapes. More like drapes.

My only concern is that It will come off as me stating that I have two degrees, and I’m tying to state that I have a dual degree which is not the same as having two degree.

That was my initial reaction, but one is in arts, and second in science? That's why it's bit complicated.

TITCR. And I'm just making suggestions here. As long as you don't wildly misrepresent your degrees, or spell something wrong, no one is going to care much.

School Name Date of Degree(right margin blog format messes this up)
Bachelor of Arts in Blah;Bachelor of Science in Blah
Cumulative GPA:3.5/4.0



The key to a resume is to be consistent through out the document. I correct resumes for an internship. Dont matter how you do it, just be consistent.
