Hi All,

Tomorrow (Today) is the deadline for Round 3. I know what my 3 accomplishments are, but I am having a difficult time expressing in 35 words. Any ideas on how to approach these?

Some say put into bullets but that just seems awkward.... Any help would be appreciated!!

From Anderson:
Part Two: List your top three accomplishments (Professional, Educational or Personal) (35 word maximum per accomplishment) (Maximum 1 page, double-spaced, 12 point font for both parts)

Bullet points seem fitting for such a small word count. Each word in the question prompt is important including the word LIST. It says to list not to explain not to go into detail. Bullet points seem to fit the word LIST exactly. It is probably a method to see what you value in life and what you deem important. I don't think it is merely another opportunity to express hey I made the firm fifty faffillion dollars.

Lazyboy thank you for the reply. Seems fitting. I can do bullet points for my professional ones and be done with those. The difficulty j am having is billeting my educational and personal billets.

For example, how can I state I am the first of 89 same generation children in my family to earn a degree?

Do I simply just state that?
"Being the first of 89 same generation children in my family to earn a degree".

(Please excuse the awkward sentence, I wouldn't write it this way, but is a reason why I am reaching out for help)

-I am the first of 89.....

Don't overthink it. I have definitely been guilty of the same.
