Work = good?

<p>Hey guys, I have pretty good scores + gpa but I feel that my e.c. are a bit lacking so would getting a job be considered a good e.c.? Does it matter what job?</p>

<p>Also another completely unrelated question, does being Russian (born in Russia with Russian citizenship but living in California) increase my chances at all or am I just 'white'</p>

<p>I'm afraid being Russian will not really affect your application..yes, you're just "white". If you are not a US citizen, you will be considered an international, which makes the competition harder.</p>

<p>Are you talking about a summer job? If you do not have ECs to fill your time, then a job would definitely make you look more industrious.</p>
