Does being a Head Girl/prefect mean anything to US colleges?

<p>So right now I'm a senior prefect at my school and will be running for Head Girl next year, but does being Head Girl even matter to US colleges? Or should I focus more of my energy on other ECs...</p>

<p>Wait, those exist out of Harry Potter?</p>

<p>Yea, british education system + private/public schools around the world. (I’m based in Hong Kong)</p>

<p>but most people in the US don’t even know what we do :(</p>

<p>My mind is blown. I’m not really sure how important that is, but it sounds pretty impressive, I don’t see any reason not to put it on an application, and I’d assume that it is some sort of leadership position, so I’d say that it is at least mildly important to US colleges. But it’s important that you do have some other EC’s as well, or dedicate yourself completely to this one</p>

<p>Leadership positions are pretty important in US Colleges. So I imagine that it will help. If you are worried about it, then you might include a brief description of your duties and everything else involved in the process.</p>

<p>I hope colleges don’t think you’re delusional and you think you go to Hogwarts. Because I literally only thought that was a Harry Potter thing.</p>

<p>I could have sworn this was a Harry Potter post! It sort of being president of your class. I think it’s may mean alot. You may be asked to be a mentor to inner city youth or tutor students or eventually to become an RA. I would include it.</p>

<p>I don’t know what the position entails, but if it is looked at as prestigious in your school environment then add that onto your application and describe what the title means and your duties/responsibilities and how you received the role.</p>

<p>Hahaha I love this! I also swore this was a harry potter post. But since it is a leadership position it’s obviously important on your application</p>

<p>Woah!!! I really did think Harry Potter when I saw this! But it couldn’t hurt…</p>



<p>I didn’t think it was possible for someone to speak my mind verbatim…</p>
