    Question about personal statement and resume

    Advertisements



    on the website it states that both of these are required, however it doesn't state how long the personal statement should be, and if there is anything specific they are looking for?

    also with the resume, are they looking for both school and employment history? Completely lost about this, thanks in advance to anyone that can help

    found this from another site

    The personal statement can be no longer than one typed paged on the ERAS system. This usually corresponds to a document between 750 and 850 words. Ensure that your statement fits in the ERAS allotted space, because the program will eliminate all lines that exceed its length restrictions.

    Yeah. About 1,000 words is fine: 2-3 pages. Anything significantly less than this or a lot more is usually unacceptable for our purposes.

    Not really. Any professionally prepared resume format is fine.
