Hey everyone!
Just wondering how detailed the "experience description" should be in the work/activities section of the application? I don't know if I should write a brief overview or a very specific explanation of all the tasks performed at each job/volunteer. Also, should I put all my "college jobs" (restaurants...etc)?
Thanks for the input!!!

There's a character limit. Just put an overview.

A very succinct overview, if the job is not self-explanatory. Do not bore the adcomm member who is reading your application with minutia.

I'm no adcom, but I'd say yes definitely on the work experiences. They want to see you've worked at something successfully, it adds to your depth as a candidate.
