Extracurricular Activity

<p>How good of an EC do u guys think tutoring is? For example I am an economics and math tutor as an Econ major. What does everyone think.</p>

<p>I don't think it matters as long as you like it. When I was taking Calculus 2, the teacher offered me to be a tutor, very high recommendation later I discovered, but I still declined because I have much better thing to do, as personally working with four additional classmates suffering with grades and get them at last 2 Cs and 2Bs. I don't think I can even write this on the resume. </p>

<p>Then there are the independent research and by debate not in school but with teacher. For the school always limit your topic and have somem *#&$# language code. "Don't hurt the personal feeling", (in other words, abortion, military draft... don't do it)</p>

<p>So go with whatever you enjoy. And forget about like what you going to put on your resume. When the time comes, like me, I am just going to write, Math Special Tutoring, then how I suffered so much, yet how awarding it was. </p>

<p>Hope that help.</p>

<p>^had to read that a couple times but i got it. thanks</p>

<p>I wonder if writing like that on your personal statement makes you a shoe-in for UCB >></p>

<p>What? Everyone knows that SPORTS are the only TRUE extracurricular activity...</p>
