I'm wondering how much emphasis USC places on whether a student has done volunteer work and if so, how many hours are deemed "suitable".
I'm an international and its much less common for students here in the UK to do volunteer work than in the US from what I can gather.
By the way, what is the US policy on volunteer work? Are all students expected to do some? Is it part of the school curriculum because from what I've seen on here most students have a reasonable amount of hours.
