Two Common Application inquiries

<li>If I’m going to handwrite my application, can I just type my short essay(most meaningful activity) and attach it to the common app instead of handwriting it on the given space?<br>

<li>If my school transcript already includes my resume, I don’t have to personally attach another one to my comm app? (this is sort of a dumb question but well, just in case)</li>

<p>1) yes
2) nobody HAS to include a resume at all. do it if you feel there is important informaiton you'd like to get across that isn't mentioned elsewhere in the application (either in your transcript or otherwise)</p>
