Ok, so I know that there are other threads about this on here, but I haven't been able to find full responses to these questions, and what can I say- I'm persistent :P
So could someone please explain exactly how to fill out the activities section of the Common App? Because those drop down bars are so vague,
1) How do you figure out/combine hours? Community service, for example; not only do I (and everybody else on here) have more than one club/organization to put down, the hours vary per year. I know that I, for one, volunteered a lot more my junior year than sophomore year... and yet, wouldn't putting down the hrws/wks/yr imply that these hours remained consistent each year? (therefore giving me a lot more hours than I deserve)
2) How are you supposed to list each and every club/activity/etc. you've participated in? I know you can use the Additional Information section (which I'm already using for something else, so already space is limited), but how would you go about doing this? Just make a list of everything, right in that box?
Aah, I am aware that this is a long message, but if aaanyone could help me out, that would be wonderful.
P.S. one more quick question- do you mention honor rolls in "Academic Honors"?
