Do clubs actually help with applications?
Answered

I know being in certain organizations like NHS and other honor societies can help improve it, but does being in regular school clubs or founding/leading a club help out? Especially if they're more unique clubs

thank you!!

Yes, they do! Colleges love seeing clubs (they make up a majority of ECs), especially founding/leading clubs. They love to see leadership as it shows you are a cabable leader and determined person. AND unique clubs may be even better than honor societies that lots of people join.

Hope this helps!
