What’s in a CV?

A curriculum vitae (sometimes called a CV or vita) is used, like a resume, to market your skills and abilities.  It is quite common in some fields (such as education or science) to have a CV instead of a resume.

QuintCareers has a really nice overview of what to include in a CV, along with links to samples and other helpful sites.

Go to Harvard for Free!

Harvard University has made some monumental changes to their financial policies in order to make college more affordable for middle- and low-income families.  Families with incomes under $60,000 will no longer be expected to contribute financially to the cost of sending their child to Harvard.  In turn, families who make between $60,000 and $180,000 will find their costs reduced as well.

For more information, take a look at this page from the Harvard Financial Aid Office.

(Now let’s just hope lots of other schools will follow suit!)
