is Facebook page/blogging considered a hobby?

<p>I mean EC*?I am interested in psychology. I have created fb page to help and support people during their hard periods of time. I have over 600 members. I keep blogging there. I have even received msgs saying that I have helped them to stop self harm/ suicidal thoughts. Can this be considered a EC? If not, then how can I make college notice it? Because I think they can idea of my passion for psychology through that page. Thanks.</p>

<p>Bump. Please reply.</p>

<p>Yes, hobbies can be EC’s. EC’s don’t have to be something you do through school. You can list this and estimate your hours spent. You can write an essay about it too if you’d like to highlight it and your motivations for doing it.</p>

<p>You could:</p>

<p>include as an EC and write essay about something else
not include as an EC and write a really awesome essay about it</p>

<p>Either way, I think it really works for showing your dedication to psychology and helping people and points to where you want to go in life</p>

<p>If you already have enough solid ECs, I think you really could knock out a powerful essay about your online experience!</p>

<p>Certainly. As long as you explain how it has expanded your understanding in some way or how it has made you come to realize _____ . More importantly, if it has enhanced your ability to think critically about other people’s thought processes and build off of that knowledge or if it has increased your passion for psychology, you can write that too.
Anything that pertains to you bettering yourself as a person and, most importantly, how that will help you in your future studies as an undergraduate then go ahead. Hope that helps!</p>

<p>I can’t add it as an EC in common app… under what I will have to add it?</p>

<p>Explain why you can’t add it as an EC on the CA</p>
