    You should make this into a poll.

    the same thing as a resume for a student.

    The format tends to be a little different, but you're right -- for someone still in college without many work experiences or publications, it's basically going to be the same thing. Makes a difference for some of us nontrads who have been developing our resume for a while and now have to change it around a bit.

    The LOR writers won't care though -- they are just looking for a summary of what you've done, so they can reference it like they actually know you a bit better.

    My school's premed comittee had us fill out an electronic form earlier in the year that resembles the AMCAS application form so they could rank us compared to other kids at my school applying. I just used that form and gave it to my professors who wrote my LOR's.

    No. I looked up "CV" on google define and got a quote from an UO resource. :)

    for most of SDN, it will be pretty much the same thing. If yours actually differs, I'd go for the CV, since this is academia.
