Sample Resume for Graduate School Application

Many graduate programs have rolling admission policy. A graduate school application resume must include all the major academic and professional accomplishments related to the field you are studying and getting enrolled into. While preparing a graduate school application resume, you should not focus on out of the box experiences but only on relevant ones.


The resume must provide information that enables the admission committee to better evaluate your candidature. The categories that need to be focused on are education, employment, extra- curricular activities, volunteer involvement, and certifications. Mentioning objective is not necessary in this type of resume. If you want to change your field of study, then you should let the school know about your goals.
