I have some trouble remembering if I was part of one of my favorite clubs in 9th grade. This is because in 9th grade, if I was a member, there was not much involvement, as many of the activities are for 10th graders and up. Especially since now I am heavily involved and am currently president and doing a lot of the work, 9th grade seems almost insignificant. The only year I am unsure of is 9th grade, and for some reason I don't seem to remember whether I was actually an official member or not during that one year. If I list 9th grade also, but it turns out to be a mistake, will I be punished? If I am unsure, should I just leave off 9th grade to be safe? The thing is my counselor thinks I have been in the club for sure for all 4 years, so if there is a difference in what she says and what I say, is that a big deal?
