Pick the most impressive ones that will fit, then include anything else in your resume.

In filling out my applications I've run into problems with not having enough characters to fully explain my positions. For example, I believe it's the U Penn app, has a section where you're supposed to list all job titles you've held since freshman year of college. It seriously only has enough room to list the titles, no years, business names, nothing. I just want to make sure there isn't something I'm missing out on, and that everyone else is as limited as I am...right?

Same goes for listing positions held and organizations, and honors/awards. There's practically no room!

Thanks for any advice/reassurance that I'm not doing this incorrectly.

Don't worry about it. Just put what will fit. Adcomms aren't going to look at your application and think you're an idiot because an online form has formatting problems.
