resume help

I just found out that I got to phase 2 of the application process for a dental hygiene program. I am one of the top 20 candidates. They only accept 12 students, so I don't want to blow it. Unfortunately I don't really understand what they are asking for. The e-mail says:

The committee asks that you submit 2 documents prior to the interview date – a resume and an essay. Your professional resume should include a personal statement as to why Dental Hygiene is your career choice. The essay should be one page, and should be on the following topic: “What is a dental hygienist and why I would like to become a dental hygienist.”

I am confused about the personal statement on the resume. They want these e-mailed to them, and I would think a personal statement would be on a cover sheet. But a cover sheet and an essay seem redundant. Should I just put it as an objective? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
