After reviewing the sample résumés, students have asked, “Are these the résumés fo real people?” Not only are they résumés of actual students, but they represent students were intentional in pursuing goals to ensure they developed a stellar résumé of service, leadership, and recognition. They are representative of the type of students who are applying to top colleges and for top scholarships. However, do not compare yourself to these students. Use their résumés to guide you in a critical review of your résumé, identifying your strengths and weaknesses, and setting appropriate goals.
