Unconvention EC titles a problem?

<p>My main club has very unconventional titles for its positions. I'm functionally the president (and spend many hours a week working hard for this club), but instead of being CALLED the president, I'm the "Coordinator of the Leadership Team."</p>

<p>I'm applying to Stanford EA, and the deadline's close enough that freak-out time has begun. Anyway, I just wanted to see how you guys took that title--will it be a problem, or will colleges (especially Stanford) realize that it's the same thing as being president?</p>

<p>Thanks so much to anyone who responds!</p>

<p>Just call yourself president on the app, and if someone refers to you by the other name in a rec letter, they'll figure it out</p>

<p>Say "coordinator of the leadership team" and put in parenthesis that this is the equivalent of being president. That way it won't seem like you're lying if your advisor or GC's info doesn't match the title.</p>

<p>Well, here's the whole story.</p>

<p>We didn't have a constitution when I was writing a list of my EC's for my recommenders, so I just put "President" on THAT, because everyone else in the club accepted that I WAS president (that's even what they called me). Now that we're writing a constitution, though, some of them feel VERY strongly that that should not be the official title.</p>

<p>So here's the thing: my GC (and other recommenders) will be putting that I'm the "president," but that may not be the title in the constitution (or the title by which I actually GO). As for the club advisor, he accepts that I'm "the leader," but he's not incredibly in the loop with the nomenclature (though I didn't ask for a rec from him anyway, so that shouldn't be a big deal).</p>

<p>I don't want to lie, but I also don't want to confuse my colleges. So far I'm leaning towards Northstarmom's suggestion, but I'm not sure if there's enough ROOM on that tiny little line on the online app to put all of that. Any more thoughts? Thanks again!</p>

<p>President / Coordinator</p>

<p>If this is the only thing left unfinished on your application, you are in good shape.</p>

<p>do you REALLY think that your acceptance/rejection will hinge upon something as trivial as the title of a leadership position?? If ur in, ur in...changing the title from "president" to "coordinator" should have negligible differences...so stop worrying...</p>
