Extra Curriculars
« on: November 23, 2004, 11:10:31 PM »
How much do EC's really matter? Is it better to have a bunch of clubs and activities that your participate in or a few that you are really involved in, such as act as an officer?
Does the fact that I am married and worked full time (as Pharmacy tech) all the way through JC and now part time through my UG matter at all? will it account for my lack of EC's?

I am a member of an honor society and I hope to have an officers position by next semester and serve as and officer for 2 semesters.

Should I be doing more? if so what?

Working during school seems to count as much if not more than ECs simply by looking at how much emphasis the applications place on this section in my opinion.  I wouldn't worry too much about it.

They always have law school panels in my school, probably once every 3 months or so.  The last one had the deans of admissions from Harvard, NYU, Cornell, Columbia, and Yale.  Somehow extracurriculars always come up.  In each of those instances, they always respond that being focused on a few activities is significantly better than not being too involved in a plethora of them.

I was thinking of posting an "Extracurriculars thread," but if the OP doesn't mind maybe I can jack this one.  What are you guys's extracurricular activities?

I don't mind

I am an active member of Psi Chi, it's a honor society for psych majors, and i am involved with the womens advocacy club. Other than that it is work.

I have be thinking of volunteering at the Haven House (a womens shelter) in my time off school.

I'm an officer in criminology student association.  That is about it with working 40 hrs and taking 12 credits.  I feel like I should be doing more but combining that w/ studying for the LSAT, forget it!

Though if I do find the time I'll prob volunteer at the humane society...
