Ok so how long does an extracurricular have to last for it to look good on a college app? I am in science olympiad this year and model UN and unicef club. Junior year i will also have beta club, National honors and french honor societies added to this list. I also run cross country. I am also in band. However, it feels like a useless class and our band is really bad and we just play and go home and dont do competitionsIs this just a bunch of random activities that have no purpose. Should I drop band? It is the only long term extracurricular I have. And also what about leadership roles? How important are they to colleges such as Vanderbilt, Columbia, and John Hopkins. Just a list of some of the schools i like.

    Schools would rather see an EC that you participated in for all 4 years rather than a bunch for only 1-2 years. Leadership is obviously going to be important for any school, but especially for T100. In short, schools would rather see a long-term commitment to a few ECs than skipping around through a bunch.
