Every year my friends and I spend hours playing fantasy football and I am the commissioner of our league. Would this be dumb to put on the activity section of the common app or should I?

    Personally I think there's a difference between an extracurricular and a hobby. You wouldn't put "I spend hours on College Confidential" on your app, or even "I read for fun." Plenty of people do those things and most students should have more meaningful extracurriculars. You only have ten spots for ECs. Don't waste them.
