A few questions about the "Activites" page

<p>Hi I have a few questions.</p>

<p>If I'm a competitive tennis player, but have conditioning and strength training geared towards tennis should that be considered part of my "tennis" time? Like I have agility classes and stuff, plus strength training where I lift weights so should I split that into time I spend doing workouts and tennis?</p>

<p>Also, for "Music: Instrumental", if I played both piano and violin does that fit in one thing or 2?</p>

<p>Same with community service, should I split it into each different organization I volunteered for?</p>

<p>Also if I participated in DECA, would class time in my IB Business/Management count? Or just the actual DECA events and prep for it?</p>

<p>If I run a tennis stringing service out of my home what should I put that down? Would that be under work? Or no?</p>

<p>Plus what if I don't know how much hours I'll spend for like Link Crew and other things?</p>

<p>Thanks in advance everyone.</p>

<p>For tennis: can that be considered training time? I'm not sure, but I think I would count it in this case.</p>

<p>In both cases, I would list the activities separately.</p>

<p>Did you get paid? Perhaps put it down as work along with an explanation?</p>

<p>Do your best to estimate? What you have done with the activity matters as much as how much time you have spent doing it.</p>

<p>These are just some of my suggestions. Trust your own judgment :).</p>

<p>Thanks for the great response! I had put down the training as part of tennis already, but I'll have to split up the music and volunteering. I did an iffy estimate but I'll ask seniors last year who did link crew too. For the stringing, I get paid but it's not a regular thing. It depends on how many people ask me.</p>

<p>For DECA, class hours do not count. And plus, if you inflated your hours per week/weeks per year, it'd be quite obvious to adcoms, as they have read thousands of applications and have a good idea how much most students can handle.</p>

<p>By the way, you're amazing for being in DECA :) Just thought I'd put that out there.</p>

<p>Ok thanks for the info about DECA, but what about when I was working on stuff for DECA in class?</p>

<p>Would tutoring during a free block/study hall count toward time spent in a peer tutoring EC? I spent about 3 hours per week on this all year but it doesn't show up on my transcript or anything. Can something that was technically done in school count as an EC?</p>

<p>I would count that as an EC Grape.</p>

<p>I would not consider in-class time as DECA time. However, if you stayed after class to complete written projects or whatnot, I would include that.</p>

<p>Penguins - what is an EC grape? Is this some kind of new admissions jargon? </p>

<p>I tried googling it but nothing relevant came up.</p>

<p>Lol sorry. I was talking to Grape 1. I guess I forgot the comma. Shouldve been: "I would count that as an EC, Grape.</p>

<p>Haha, my bad! I thought I was onto some new adcom secret lingo for a sec :D</p>

<p>Haha nope!</p>

<p>Another question: For the athletic supplement should I put down my HS coach's name, or my private coach's name and info? I barely talk to my HS coach other than the season but work with my private coach year round.</p>

<p>Shameless bump.</p>

<p>Anyone else?</p>

<p>I used my private coach for the athletic supplement info.</p>

<p>One of my teammates asked the same question to an adcom from Pton, and that's what the adcom suggested (given that you are more involved with your private coach).</p>

<p>I would agree with everything Calico said. As for the coach question, I would put the Private Coach, as he/she knows you better and can attest to your skills as opposed to the high school coach.</p>

<p>Alright I'll use my private coach. That's who I wanted to put down anyways!</p>
