Don't get caught "copying" text.
Some recruiter is going to realize that you are using the same language as another applicant she's seen. (We know recruiters who are BC alumni who've seen the language from their own resumes and cover letters recycled by others!)
Personalize your resume format.
Do you want your resume to look like every other BC students'? No. So if you see a format you like, adapt it, personalize it, change it.
