I know EC's are a big part of applying to TCNJ and can also help if you're lacking in another section (sat's,class rank,gpa,etc)
I was wondering if the "off-the-cuff" type of volunteering and EC's help more than others, or if it looks better to have ones pertaining to your major?
I'm a jr and will be applying next year for education ED, my ec's will be at time of applying:
-First Aid Response Squad[cpr,first aid, emt certified along with going in the actual ambulance and working on calls] for 1 year
-Buddy Baseball[T-ball with autistic children] for 3 years
-Peer Leadership for 4 years (Hopefully president Sr year)
-Conflict Manager for 2 years
-Mock Trial 1 year
-Epilepsy advocate[recognized on the foundations website] for 2.5 years
-Interning for Board of Ed. various hours
Do you guys think the diversity/"rarity" of such EC's would impact me greater than the average ec's? or because they don't necessarily pertain to my major they look the same as any EC's?
I'm hoping that this could help outshine my lack of AP classes, any help is appreciated thanks!
