    Resume for FSU
    I'm applying for FSU (Florida state) but in the application it says you need a resume, I don't really know how I would format this resume, because I've never had to do it for any other application, if anyone can help me with this and let me know what I should put on the resume I would really appreciate it, thanks !

    No, but one of my teachers told me it wasn't a business resume, so I wasn't suppose to add any of that, hence my confusion.

    Okay. I think I got it (scroll up to the resume post I made). There can be variations with caps for headings, etc. It's difficult to use HTML here. MS Word would be much easier, and that's where you would do this for real.

    Whaddya think?

    With Word, it's real easy to play around with spacing and caps and bolding and centering (or not) until it looks just the way you want it to. You might want to center sections in order to emphasize them. Be sure to leave lots of white space; don't clutter it up with lots of words by telling what you did every minute during HS. The resume may guide the admissions interviewer, so put on the resume the things you want to talk about and are proud of.
