Can you help me with that? Stuffs I mention in activities should in also add them in the resume while creating one? How does AO’s see resume is it something beneficial? I myself think I will not be able to add all my activities in that given so thinking of sending. Can you tell me should I actually submit one?

So, I wrote up a resume for my teachers to be able to write a letter of recommendation for me, but not for colleges as it was just repetitive information. If there are other important activities to you that you want the admissions officers (AO) to see, then consider adding one. However, as an AO is reading many other applications, adding more minor activities may not be beneficial to you. And by the way of order, place them by which activity means the most to you, the one you spend the most time on, etc.
