Remove Technical skills, Relevant coursework.
Move Honors to the Education section.
Condense Volunteer work. This entire section should be 1-2 lines for each position, especially since they're almost all scouting related.
Condense all those minor club positions to single lines in the Eduction section under an Extracurriculars subhead. (club outreach intern, discussion leader, etc.)

This can all fit on one page.

As an FYI, your full e-mail address is still listed, in the event that may reveal personal info (I haven't checked).

Otherwise, try to keep it to one page and keep it that way up through your first post-grad job. Those experiences are all great, but I am not sure that many of them would warrant a page flip during the resume review process.

Here is a link to my updated resume. I've condensed it down to one page and tried to highlight mainly my legal experience.

EDIT: LINK REMOVED

Note: For some reason the upload site changed the formatting a bit, but on word it all fits on one page. Also, under my education section where it reads "Graduated June 2013" that is a supposed to be aligned to the right.

I dont know guys, one page looks pretty jam packed. Harvard used to have sample resumes on their website ( I can not find them at all) but there were some two pagers on there.

I would think about consolidating AND spacing it out so it is easy to read.
