    I have received a lot of advice for my resume. However, I have a question about the format. Many have suggested that I divide it by grade level. How exactly does this work? Also, should I repeat the same leadership positions that I had for several years in a row?

    Ex.

    Leadership Positions:

    12th grade
    ~President...
    ~Secretary...
    ~JROTC Officer....
    ~Representative

    11th grade
    ~Ambassador
    ~Representative

    10th grade
    ~President
    ~Representative

    do I do the same for my other accomplishments? Do I insert my athletic accomplishments into the same area as my Leadership positions?

    Ex.

    12th grade
    ~President
    ~Cross Country
    ~Received .... awards

    11th grade
    ~Ambassador
    ~ (explanation)
    ~ Received ... awards


    ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED:thumb:

    I REALLY WANT TO SEND THIS IN. :thumb:

    DS divided his up by type of EC (Leadership, Athletics, Community service, awards...) this is how the AFROTC asked for it and it is easier to read then by grade. Similar to how the SS application was. Also if you do list by grade it was very repetitive and we felt more difficult to read. Did put the years involved in each activity (Student Government- 4 yr member) and a description of responsibilities... so on. This it is easier for them to asses your EC then trying to piece it all together by what you did each year that was leadership, athletics and so on.

    This is what I did...it reminded me of the way the SS application is set up and it felt to me like it was organized more logically.
