I'm a bit confused on one aspect of the Georgetown app: there is a section for extracurriculars/awards, and then also a section where you select from a list of school organizations. There are three open spots for Additional Activies...should I list three from the extracurriculars section that are not on the list, or three new ones that they have not read about? I don't really understand why they need us to rank the activities from the list, since we already listed our extracurriculars in order of importance.

Could anyone enlighten me a bit?

    Speaking as an accepted EA applicant, I believe the "list of school organizations" where you rank the top 3 are the ECs that you are thinking about participating in at Georgetown. Which is different from your resume.

    haha. that's not how i did it. i basically doubled up my resume because the list part only allowed 5 things which didn't fit all of my stuff.
