Hey guys

Pretty standard question here. My resume is 1 page---everyone across the finance world/web seems to agree that a 1 page only resume is a must.
However, Tepper allows 2 pages a requests 12 point font. My resume is 11 point font and when I make it 12 the resume expands to about 1.5 pages.

I have a lot of extracurriculars and can not really shrink it without taking away good material.


Do you guys think it is okay to go to 1.5 pages. Even tough Tepper days 2 is okay do you think that if I go over 1 they will look down upon me as "outta the loop?"

So what did you do in the end ? Stick to a page or expanded to two ?
