Just wondering, do AdComs tend to review your resume before your essay? I ask because if I mention a club I was part of in my resume and provide the scope/my accomplishments, is it necessary to re-explain what the club was in my essay? Or should I assume that the reader read the resume first?
I'd say you don't want to make them jump back and forth or assume they'll have memorized your resume. Give context and explain because they don't have time and therefore won't look into what you're talking about. The obvious exception is if you have explained in another essay. Their memory will last from one essay to the other.
