Resume or CV for Graduate School Applications

  1. Dec 22, 2015 #1
    I have a bit of a dilemma with graduate school applications that I feel many people here would have encountered. Part of the applications requires either a CV or a resume, and I find that the list of my expierences, educations, presentations and awards is a little to short to be considered a CV, and a little too long for a resume. My question is should I write everything out in the format of a CV and have it be about 1.5 pages, or should I cut some things out and have the standrard 1 page resume.

    For some quick background, I am graduating this coming spring from my undergraduate institution in the US and have had 1 six month internship in the private sector, and I have worked in a lab with one of the faculty members here for about 2 years.

    Any advice would be helpful!
