Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
There is a field in which I am supposed to provide a description of the nature of the work that I perform, the range of the budget and the number of people that I supervise, with details about clients and results that I have attained. This is not a required field.
I have the following dilemma:
- Should I type "Please see the attached CV" since my CV has a very detailed description of my job responsibilities, or
- Should I copy&paste from my CV, or
- Should I describe everything allover again, but with different words...?
Also if an application asks, how many years of post-graduate employment do you have? BUt it doesn't mention upon matriculation, so should I mention the total years uptil now or should I assume that hte application is asking how many years will I have upon entering?
Also this off topic but one of my applications is asking me to enter the other programs I am applying to, did you guys enter the other schools you are applying to?
I've been confused about the format for filling out this section. Columbia, for example, gives a huge word/character allotment, whereas Harvard severely limits you. So obviously there are some variations from application to application.
But, in general, should these be filled out in bullet-point format or paragraph format??? With the former, I feel as though I am just copying my resume. If they wanted to see a resume, why wouldn't they just look at it. On the other hand, using first-person prose to describe work experience can sound very unprofessional.
Thank you to anyone who an shed some light!
