Well, since I've decided to apply to Columbia early decision, I've been working on my application over the past week. I'm now to my weakest section, extracircullar activities. Would it be ok to list Beta Alpha Psi, Institute of Management Accountants, men's adult soccer league, and goju katate kempo as extra activities while in college? How about the Institute of Management Accountants, men's adult soccer league, Nevada Society of CPA's, and community improvement organization for post college. How much information should I give about each activity, and should I follow the bulleted format shown on Columbia's application, or should I write the information in paragraph form? I really don't have any outstanding extra activities. Should I include weight lifting (not organized)? Thanks again for you help.

You should list anything you have participated in, but realize that the schools are looking for people who make a commitment and assumed responsibility, not just those who carried a membership card. So make the most of what you've got and in giving information, show yourself in as active a role as you honestly can do.

Also, if you have only be active in one or two of these organization, that's OK, and perfectly normal. We are not usually active and passionate about everything. But if you got involved, make sure that your description shows it.

Good luck!
