I have been wondering, is it necessary to go into detail about the specific responsibilities that you held in your extracurriculars (EC) in your resume?
I have reviewed the template from TLS and it seems a bullet, title, and affiliated organization suffice.
However, other resumes I have seen go into detail about their EC responsibilities. I am a recent college graduate but I have had six meaningful and resume worth jobs. I was just going to bullet my EC under my awards which would put me at a page long resume with my employment information
What should I do with the resume?

I agree...however, schools like Berkeley and Yale (schools I anticipate applying too in the future) prompt the applicant to list their EC in some detail. So I assumed why not kill two birds with one stone and have a somewhat elongated resume that details the EC.
Also, I feel I am unofficially obliged to submit some information on my ECs because I am a URM applicant.
