Does it look fantastic?  Take time to proofread and improve your writing.  Do you have any typing mistakes?

Does it look like you?  Is your personality showing through this 1 page?

Is a border needed?  If you do not have a lot of writing, a border would be VERY HELPFUL.

Do you have 2 fonts (1 for writing sections, 1 for section headings)?

Do your colors coordinate?

Have you handed out your half-sheets yet?

Have you picked out a current picture yet?

Print a B/W copy and have someone else read over in class… tell them to find mistakes.  Mark the mistakes, then fix the mistakes.

Create a great first impression through this document.
