1) Can the resume be more than a page? Even using the exact template with 10 pt. font I cannot cut mine shorter than a page and a half.
2) Are you asked to explain your locations, specifically your 2nd choice, during the interview?
I'm also not sure about the resume. Locations, yes. They ask why you want to go to ___. If your second choice is located somewhere differently than your first, I'd imagine that they'd like to know why.
Ohhh, I see. I assumed that "Other option?" was a request to chose a second location in the event there is an abundance of people who want to be in one place or something like that. I will just list my preference twice. Thanks a lot!
Wait. Are you talking about on the application?
They don't ask you to explain your second location that you listed on your application. That's just for if they happen to not have somewhere to place you in your first location; although, my understanding is that where you get placed is mostly dependent on what firms are asking for.
I thought you were saying if you chose a second firm in a different location!
