No Sports a minus

<p>If you are not an athlete in any sport - no teams, no cross country, no private lessons, nothing - would that be a big minus for you in Stanford?</p>

<p>Would 2 yrs of marching band and setting up an archery club help?</p>

<p>I would say no athletics is a minus, but if you can show dedication in your other activities, it's not a big minus. It's not about what you do, but what you learned by doing it. :)</p>

<p>its kinda late to think about that now isnt it?</p>

<p>even if u get an answer from people who post, its not like you can do anything about it</p>

<p>dont torture yourself...dont worry about it and just make ur app the best it can be</p>

<p>Its not a minus. They just want you to show some passion in your ECs (whatever that may be). I didn't have any sports (just marching band for 4 years..not like that counts lol), and I turned out fine.</p>

<p>It's not a minus at all. Stanford doesn't care so much about how you spend your time but rather that you are good/committed to whatever you decide to do.</p>

<p>llpitch, I think marching band is big. Or at least in my area, marching band is a big deal.</p>
