Taekwondo
Answered

Hi! I'm a current junior. I've done taekwondo for nearly ten years now, and I'm a 2nd-degree black belt (some quick searches tell me that around 1% of people in taekwondo earn this degree.) How strong is this as an extracurricular or sport? I've won a couple of regional (with North Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana competitors) competitions with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places. Would I classify this as a JV sport or similar? Thank you!

Common App gives you the option to list something as a club sport. I assume your training has no school association, so I would list it as that.
