Organizing EC's

edited August 2009 in Common Application
I'm having trouble trying to make full use of my 7 slots for the EC section. For example, one of my EC's is Art, I'm the pres. art club, took various classes outside of my school, have done painting which are on display at my school, participated in art shows, sold/commissioned my art, etc
should I put each of these aspects of art into there own EC or just put one general? and what about community service, should I put one EC and put all my community service in that or should i make separate ones? or should I attach a resume and put everything? and what about leadership camps like RYLA/Boystate?

    should I put each of these aspects of art into there own EC or just put one general?

    You can do either. Split up the activities if you need to fill space, or simply use your best judgement in determining if the activities are close in description, or are very different and should be listed separately.
    and what about community service, should I put one EC and put all my community service in that or should i make separate ones?

    Same for this.
    or should I attach a resume and put everything?

    You can attach a resume in the additional information section if you don't have enough room. Be sure to keep it concise if you choose to.
    and what about leadership camps like RYLA/Boystate?

    What about them? If you mean listing them in the activities section, sure, if they were important to you.

    okay thanks man. If we do a resume, would you advice repeating all the EC's I put in the 7 slots on the resume and then adding additional activities? or just the additional stuff?
    and for RYLA I'm hoping to be an alumni so i was thinking that would be good. and for boystate it was great, but it was only a week and I have more long term committments.
