How to quantify a business for extracurricular activities?

Hello all,

In all of my submitted applications, I included my self-run online business as one of my extracurriculars. When reporting the profits of the business in the activity description, I did not include the specific exact amount of money that I made (ie. $15,000) because I didn’t want to sound like I was bragging or exaggerating. I just more generally mentioned “Five-figure overall net profit since start of operations”

Do you guys think this is okay? I want to be specific and clear but at the same time don’t wanna sound like I’m flexing/exaggerating. Thanks

That’s fine.


I appreciate entrepreneurship and all it takes. I think, if you described it that way, it will be perfect for non-business schools but underwhelming for the more entrepreneurial ones.
