CV problem HELP

Postby Seerat » Mon Nov 19, 2018 12:26 pm

I am going to apply at Ohio state university. It is mentioned on program site that please limit your CV to 1-2 pages. But my CV is of 5 pages. I have written everything in shortest possible way. But my CV cannot be reduced to 2 pages at any cost. it need 5 pages for all my accomplishments.
does please limit means 2 pages only? What I understood is that they say try to limit but it can be more pages. help.

Limit means limit. 2 pages maximum.

You can check professor's CV for reference. They usually only state their selected, most important publications (not full publications list) to shorten their CV. Employment history can also be stated briefly, no description needed. Remove unnecessary details.
