I don't have many EC's, will colleges deny my acceptance because of this?
Hello, I'm a rising senior with not many EC's. The only good ones I have are: playing on a team for 2 years and on the third managing it, volunteering at my doctor's office for almost 3 years, and being on my school's NHS. Will this be good enough? If not, how can I increase my chances?

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Uh ivy+ schools will likely deny you (MIT Yale NW Rice Stanford) but if the school is more formalistic in admissions such as K State as in have x gpa and have y SAT/ACT you gain near automatic admission and holistic schools that have high admission rate such as over 70% usually care about grades more than ECs.
Also if you are recruited for your sport/team it kinda supercedes everything.
Hope this helps
