Insight Resume - Success Program


UCM would like to better understand your qualifications and diverse talents. This Insight Resume allows us to take a more comprehensive look at the experiences you bring to the University -- not just your ACT/SAT score and high school GPA. Please respond to the six questions and limit your answers to 100 words per question. Allow at least 30 to 45 minutes to complete the Insight Resume. There is NO save option so if you exit before you are finished you will need to start over. Feel free to draft your responses in a word processing document and cut and paste your responses into the resume.
