RESUME/CV TIPS
  • Be prepared to list your education, previous work
    experience, and any honors and awards youve
    received.
  • Be sure to include your current personal contact
    information as well. Give your address, phone
    number, and email address
  • Only display a professional email address first
    initial, last name _at_____
  • Whether you are creating a resume or CV from
    scratch, using a template, or plugging your
    information into a resume/CV builder, you need to
    double check all the information! A spelling
    error or typo on your resume could be the deal
    breaker.
  • If you can, have someone else look over your
    resume/CV. It never hurts to have another set of
    eyes looking for errors.

    the degree requirements of the program for which

    specific Graduate Entrance or Professional School
    Entrance Exams before admission.

    proof of prerequisite courses, resume, etc. Some
    programs require supplemental applications.

Personal Statement
  • The best statement of purpose you can write will
    be in your unique voice as a writer. Dont try to
    be someone youre not.
  • When talking about your past in a personal
    statement, you want to focus on those events that
    have led you to this point in your academic and
    professional career.
  • You want to leave your readers with a clear
    understanding that youre not just seeking this
    degree because it seems kind of interesting or
    because you cant think of anything else to do
    they should sincerely believe that you have a
    plan in mind and that graduate school figures
    into that plan.
