i appreciate both of your responses! how did i know Heartbreaker would come to my rescue! i swear, im on this site really for you and Blueskies
thanks to the both of you though. i think i have to go with Heartbreaker here- adcomms dont want to read a huge DS when they still have other parts of your app they are busy with and thousands of other applications to sort through. i'll limit it to 1 page and try and touch on something different about my background.
the information has helped me tremendously. y'all are awesome!!
