How many community service hours should i have for top schools?

On my application I put 250 hours of community service for peer tutoring classmates/underclassmen in writing.

Yes I had 20-30 here and 20-30 there, but my main focus was tutoring students which is part of the reason I plan to major in English and optimally become a college professor.
Anyway, sorry about that digression, but my question is is 250 hours in 1 area enough?

Please don't respond if you're going to make a sarcastic joke like "you have to cure cancer too... or 10000 hours".

I would just like to know if 250 hours in one volunteer aspect is impressive, especially if i got a volunteer award for it
