Not Sure There Is a Difference
by: Kathi

Hi Liz... Thanks for posting this question. I'm not sure there's a big distinction between pending vs candidate. Both mean that you're in the process, but have not yet achieved the degree. I think as long as you indicate your current status in school through the dates and then use some term to show you don't yet have the degree, you'll be fine!

To your success,
