I've been thinking of starting a channel and was wondering if it could count as an extracurricular. It is related to the major that I want to go in (so it's not some generic gaming channel). If it could count, what would be a good subscriber count? I am a Freshman so I do have time before actually applying to colleges.
Yes it does count as an ec! Under extracurriculars on collegevine, you would put it as a “hobby” and it would be ranked tier 2C. I don’t think it matters how many subscribers you get necessarily but if you could get up to 1k subscribers / views (to get verified/monetized) I think that would be impressive :)
Yes! In fact, many colleges will ask if you do have an online presence and if you would like to submit it to be included in your application (at least in my experience).
