Mostly looks strong and well organized. Quick thoughts:

  • First bullet on your S&P internship is redundant / non additive and can be eliminated

  • If both your schools are nontargets I'd consider removing the first one from the doc

  • If you can fluff up some of your titles (the unofficial ones like "volunteer" or "program assistant") that could help

  • people love "Interests" sections - there's a bunch of runners out there so consider listing your track events as a possible common touchpoint

  • in general there are a few sentences that can be shortened. You don't need to say "won a quantitative Econ award for excellence in quantitative econ," the first four words get the point across enough. White space is good! When I review resumes I often don't really read any bullet longer than one line so keep things pithy as possible
