Just wondering what everyone thinks about entering EC descriptions. Should it be in resume style where the subject is omitted, or should it be more of a narrative style?

For example, if someone was writing about a poster presentation that they gave at a conference, would they write:

"I presented a poster..."

or

"Presented a poster..."

I did everything in narrative using the active voice. I chose to say "I did this" and "I did that" because, to me, it sounded better and seemed more personal. I talked about what I did and why/how often I did each activity. For those not mentioned in my personal statement, I gave a quick snapshot what I learned or gained from the experience.

That said, just pick whichever one you like. I doubt there is any one definitively correct way--just make sure that whichever format you choose, it should present you positively and not contain any egregious grammar or spelling mistakes.
