<p>Ive been reading a lot of these profiles in "what are my chances" forum. So many people list their ec's in terms of years. Is this how you would mention it in your applications? for example, i have been playing piano for 11 yeras and done classical indian singing for 9 yrs. Is this how I mention it on the application. </p>
<pre><code> secondly, unless awards of a regional, state or national level, are they worht mentioning? is it worth mentioning random independent piano competitions that have a less prestige. THe point im getting at is, unless u have these prestigious distinctions in ur extracurriculars (not sports) wouldnt they seem kinda worthless and possibly dishonest to the admissions board? The same goes for community service.
