Since you are a junior in college judging by the year of graduation, and you have several internships, you should probably exclude the section on high school stuff. Also you should mention any results of your activities throughout the resume, preferably quantified.

1.) Take high school stuff off
2.) List GPA (don't see that anywhere)
3.) Don't take 2 lines to list all of your classes -- excessive and that line is useful elsewhere
4.) 10-q, 10-k --WSO won't let me capitalize the Q/K but these should be capitalized; not 10q, 10k
5.) Your resume REALLY signals that you are a finance drone. I would consider taking off one of the internships and putting a leadership position (read: not just "member") in a volunteer/extracurricular/non-financial related organization in the "Activities" section.
6.) Take equity research off of your interests (this is evident)
7.) "Physical Conditioning"? I would re-word this...
8.) Quantify, quantify, quantify. How many did you cold call? How many management teams did you talk to? etc etc etc

Thank you very much for the great advice! I agree with pretty much everything you listed. As to the GPA- I only have a 3.1 from a semi-target (that's why I don't have it listed). Do you think I should keep it off or put it on there?
