These chances threads are often by nervous, scared, uninformed, brash and yet still very charming high schoolers (for the most part)....
The responses are by...college alum and current students?...equally uninformed high school peers?...random people on the internet?....well...who the heck knows?
Anyway, a response that I've seen many times is, "Your ECs are weak." This line seems to be used by both posters who are trying just to be funny/mean and those posters who are seriously trying to help. Hell, I've even used that line myself!
I've seen someone with 2 varsity sports for 3-4 years AND a demanding pt job AND 5 other things on their list get this response....(Not from me by the way; I've only used the line in worse case senarios.)
So my question for everyone is: What is a good list of ECs?
