This fund has a purchase and redemption fee of .25%. Or I could just purchase an ETF of the same fund. Using Robinhood, I can do that for no cost.

The expense ratio of the ETF is identical to that if I purchase admiral shares in the index fund.

Why would anyone purchase the index fund, when you can just purchase the ETF instead, pay the same expense ratio, and avoid the load/redemption fee?
