I'm looking to apply to a couple of competitive academic or leadership summits, where do I put these on the common app? I want to say honors section but I'm not exactly sure.
Because it’s competitive to get picked for these summits, the honors section is a great place to put them. If you earn any awards or recognition at these summits, you can also include that information there.
You can add it to the honors section of the Common Application or some schools will have a spot to indicate any conferences, mission trips, or online courses you have taken the opportunity for. Lastly, you can always use the Additional Info section to indicate your summits.
Honors Section! I had this exact same question, I put it on the honors section and it worked out perfectly fine there.
