Extracurricular 150 Word Essay?
For the Common App essay where you can elaborate on an extracurricular activity:
1) Is it inappropriate to add humor/be creative, in contrast to the personal statement?
2) Is it safe to assume that 150 words of interesting details of community service activity > 150 word description of responsibilities as a club president?
Should I be using every bit of my space to cram the who, what, when, where, and why of a long-term activity, or can I write about a weeklong volunteer job that I did recently, enjoyed, and really pushed myself?
3) Would it be okay to talk briefly about a second, semi-related activity? (Summer camp volunteer for refugee children and tutoring Hispanic ESL kids once a week during school year)
Thanks in advance for your help!
