I'm just about ready to submit my optometry application on OptomCAS and began worrying about the fact that I've listed the descriptions of my experiences in point-form format (not paragraph format). Despite the fact that it's in point-form format, I think the description is quite complete and correct. I have included an example below. What do you guys think? Should I change it to paragraph form?

Thank you!!! :)

Example - Employment: Community Living Mississauga
- Supported teenagers (aged 13-21 years) who have an intellectual and/or physical disability to participate in a variety of community activities.
- Obtained Standard First Aid Certification, Crisis Prevention Intervention Training, and Personal Care and Emergency Training.
- Budgeted and allocated resources from the Ministry of Social Services towards engaging and productive weekly activities.
- Attended weekly meetings and documented daily activities in report and communication logs for parents and staff supervisors.

I did the same. It should be in point format. You just need to list the stuffs you've done, and it doesn't say anything about writing in paragraph.
