Chalk Talk: Resumes for College Applications
A college resume is a one-page list of extracurricular activities. They’re very useful for college admissions committees because they’re easy reference tools. There isn’t a set format for resumes, but some elements should be the same. For example, the student’s name and contact info should be centered at the top of the page. The rest of the page should be divided into sections. These sections contain the activities, grouped according to theme. It’s a good idea to make these themes as telling as possible, to get the most “bang for your buck.” So, instead of having a section with sports and another with clubs, have one with leadership activities, which might include some clubs and some sports. At first, students might think that a page is a lot of fill, but the reality is that a page fills up quickly, and only the most significant activities will fit.
