Writing ECs on app

<p>so on form 2 they only give a little space to type accompl in each category for activites...is there anywhere else we could write more things to expand it or is that all we get?? can we send extra resume or attach a paper to it or no?</p>

<p>Good question. I've heard with the online app you just have to squeeze and abbreviate, but it does make an EC you spent tons of time on look pretty puny, doesn't it?</p>

<p>Yeah, they do that to force us to not write a laundry list. Still it is rather small...</p>

<p>The number of hours you spend a week and any major awards you have received will show them your dedication. Remember everyone has to deal with the same constraints so I'm sure those who work in admissions understand that you have to condense a lot of information into a small space. Your activity essay is one place to talk a bit about why one of your activities has been especially meaningful, and other activities could always make their way into the other three essays.</p>

<p>I hate how you don't get to explain your awards or their significance.</p>
