For schools like UT Austin that want to see your expanded resume, how long should it be? I've heard that you should never have over a page for a resume, but is that only true regarding jobs or college as well? In that case, I've tried to fit my top 3 ECs on my resume, but it still kind of looks squished on one page. What should I do? Put all my EC's if I might as well have 2 pages bc I can't even fit my top 3 or just stick with top 3 and squish it on the first page or have top 3 and expand it to the very top of the second page? Thanks in advance for reading all of this :)

Resumes are very brief and should never be more than 1 1/2 pages. It’s fine if it’s not 1 page. As for a CV put as much on it as possible that details your life.

Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification as I’d be happy to help clarify!
