    Host: Do I just repeat my resume in my essay?

    David Petersam: Absolutely not, that's a waste of space. Space is very scarce in the application. There is lot an applicant needs to cover. You don't want to just regurgitate your resume. The only part of the resume that belongs in the essay is the narrative. If and when necessary to explain the career path and the person's progression to date.
