Kellogg Application - Description of Duties [#permalink]

This post received KUDOS
I have a pretty simple question here regarding the work experience section of Kellogg's application. There is a "Description of Duties" section that has no word or character limit. I am wondering if this space should be filled with a paragraph-type discussion of my duties, or if it should include only brief sentences, such as the same types of things that are provided on my resume. It seems redundant to just copy and paste what is on my resume, but, at the same time, I see merit in keeping the description of duties short and sweet, as the person who is reading it will likely appreciate conciseness. Thoughts?

My resume already includes pretty "short and sweet" descriptions of my duties. Is it okay to lift those from the resume and put them in the Kellogg application verbatim? Of course my resume also includes more of the quantifiable accomplishments that I would not include in the application, but as far as "duties" on my resume, I kept them to three short bullets.
Bottom line is: is it okay to lift the bullets from my resume and place them right into the application?
You're right to not want to write the same things that can be found on your resume but you're also right to want to keep it concise. The goal is to be both impactful and easy to digest for the person reading it. Paragraphs can be cumbersome and they already have your essays, right? So try to keep it different from your resume wherever possible - highlight different aspects or touch upon different themes.
