We recently hired two PhD students, one with a 1,5-page-CV, the other with a 5,5-page-CV. What matters is the content. If you can fill 4 pages with relevant information, go for it, but I would go for 1-2 pages with hyperlinks to relevant content (LinkedIn, Google Scholar, your website, publications, ORCID, etc. - whichever you use).

There seem to be at least three potential issues raised by your question. They appear to be conflated in either your thinking, or your question, and it is not clear which is really important. The first possibility is that you are saying you study hard, understand the material and know the domain but are then somehow either unable to access your knowledge in ...

If you spend a lot of time and effort on this you could be spending it more effectively. The sort of doctoral education you get depends much more on your advisor, your relationship to them, and what you do yourself than the "ranking of the school. MA/MS programs are a bit different in that some are pretty much classroom based and some require some sort ...

I agree with the answer by Aolon that content matters much more than size, and I would add that what also matters are: Readability. Densitiy of information. Readability: I've sometimes seen people press a lot of (relevant) information into two pages, probably because somebody had told them that "a CV should not be longer than two pages"; this ...

There is nothing inherently problematic about getting two degrees. There is certainly nothing problematic about getting sick. You appear to have went back to school a second time so the first is only loosely relevant. One should not be generally concerned about "extra" education when you are going for a PhD. (I have met people with multiple PhD's ...

"Under review" is better than "Pending" or "In progress". I would include them, but be clear. In some cases, it is appropriate to list the journal because there was a review and there are comments to address, in other cases, if you submit and have gotten nothing back, I'd recommend just listing "Under review".

A professor is a human and may hold grudges for the wrongdoing or misconduct or something similar incurred because of a student. However, maturity is somewhat common in professors and they are likely to be flexible and very welcoming in seeing their old students. They may be happier by the reunion.

It's normal. Don't worry about it. I'm guessing that you used to be one of the smartest kids at your high school, and you studied really hard so that could get into a good university, right? So did all the other kids in your class. As a result, your course and its marking was designed to take into account the overall higher level of ability possessed by the ...

From my personal experience both in the US and in Europe, a Fachhochschule will be seen as technical education and not equivalent to a Bachelors. I believe there is a now a route to convert your Fachhochschule degree to a Bachelors equivalent, but don't remember the details or if its true. Personally, if you are thinking about further education, I would go ...

Compare your situation to publications: it is acceptable to add paper that is not yet out, but has been accepted by the journal. In this case we write "(in print)" instead of "published on June 30, 2021" If you have signed contract, it is OK to write "accepted internship at ___". Whether it's going to help you or not is a ...
