As I read a lot of the profiles I'm starting to wonder what qualifies for "excellent, modest, or even average" extracurricular activities.
I believe the true value of any EC activity is usually personal so I don't think there can be any right or wrong answers to this one.
I don't think you can say, for example, volunteering at a soup kitchen is better/worse than Habitat for Humanity. I think the quality is more whether in your ECs you have committed to something over a period of time, and what you've accomplished - leadership, creativity, teamwork, etc. As for whether someone says their ECs are "excellent, modest or average" that's purely subjective.
