CV and Statement and Purpose Overlap!

Postby AriAstronomer » Sat Dec 31, 2011 12:15 am

Hey guys,
So for the schools up till this moment that I've applied to, I didn't explicitly have a paragraph explaining my awards and achievements in the statement of purpose, but included my CV which did list them. In retrospect I'm now a bit nervous. Do you think it's possible a school might not look at my CV and thus miss reading my awards, or do all schools take care in reading everything thoroughly? Should I be worried?

From now on I think regardless I'm including my awards in a small paragraph in my statement of purpose, but the schools I'm hoping for most I've already applied to....

Thoughts?

Just put "see attached CV" in your personal statement. The strongest personal statements usually contain that phrase (source: a guide to personal statements)
