Over-doing ec's?

Hello! (Freshman)

I have so many ideas for ec's.

I'm actually starting a non-profit right now, but I have an idea for another one maybe next year. Would it look bad and like I'm trying too hard or being desperate to get into college? Both non-profits are things I care a lot about. Thanks!

This will not make your look desperate. This will show that you tremendously care, so do not fret. Also, congratulation on all your hard work!

2 ECs are not overdoing it. At all. The people who get into the ivies are the biggest try-hards, but it is to their advantage. Hard work will put you ahead of your peers.
