Computer Bullet or Paragraph in ERAS experience

Hi all,

I just wanted an opinion/advice on completing the ERAS CV. Is it preferable to describe experiences in bullets or in paragraph form? I know there a little more than 1000 characters (with spaces) that are allowed in this section and it just seems like a lot of space.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

It does not matter whether in paragraphs or in bullets.

It's a personal preference and it won't make a difference.

The most important thing is to clearly describe the experiences in enough details so that people understand clearly what you have done.

So, i've just checked the my application's printable version and whatever i do, it always comes out in paragraph form. The reason i asked is because this will affect the way i describe my experiences.

Thanks anyway.
