Should I report this weird EC?


<p>For the past two years, I have competed in the Shelby Kennedy Foundation's National Bible Bee. It is a national competition for competitors aged 7-18, where we are tested on Bible Memorization and Bible Knowledge of a designated Book of the Bible. It has a lot of partners, and gives away 260,000$ in prizes each year. For the past two years, I have qualified for the National Competition (only the top 300 scorers out of roughly 6000-7000 make it). I have no idea if I should put it on my college applications! Any advice? Also, if I do, how am I supposed to explain what it is to the colleges? Thanks!</p>

<p>Yea, this is a pretty cool EC. You should definitely put it in your resume. It gives your resume something that other transcripts won’t have.</p>

<p>That is really unique! You should definitely include it. As for explaining it to colleges, I think the way you did above was fine (saying that only 300 make it out of the 6000-7000). That gives them an idea of how prestigious it is to get to the level of competition you were at. And that is really all they care about (I think). Describing the entire process is not something I think colleges will be interested in.</p>

<p>Thanks for the feedback!</p>

<p>Unique and awesome – include it with brief explanation</p>

<p>This should definitely be in your applications. You won’t be able to fit all this in the Activities section and it isn’t an activity adcoms are likely to be familiar with, so include it in the Additional Information section with a couple concise explanatory sentences.</p>
