One (Almost) Down

I've successfully filled out one application. It had some strangeness to it - like the question about whether or not my parents are: separated, divorced, married. I wonder if they realize that there are more scenarios than just these three, or if they don't care.

I need to update my resume. I've already decided to break the rule and have it be more than a page long. I'd rather include everything I think needs to be included than to cut things that could potentially make a positive difference.

I'm getting tempted (again) to add more schools back onto my list. After all that work getting them off...

Okay, that concludes my sharing of the perpetual thoughts of applications that run through my head, day in and day out.

I must say, since I started working on my applications, I have not been tempted at all to add any more work. One down, eight to go!

That's great! Just curious - Where are you at on your PS?

Congratulations! If you have solid experience that you need to share the "one-page" rule is definitely flexible (mine was 3, for example). The most important thing is to make it highly readable -- both in format and in content. Use lots of white space!
