Can providing advice for college essays on CollegeVine be listed as extracurricular activities?
Answered

I've assessed a couple of essays for the past few weeks, and most of my feedback from the writers has been pretty good. I plan to continue doing so because I feel like I'm able to provide concrete feedback, and enjoy doing so. I spend a lot of time going through each essay, and assessing various factors. Would this be an activity worth mentioning?

I think that this activity is definitely worth mentioning, since you are spending a good amount of time creating a positive impact. I recommend explaining your motivation for providing free peer reviews along the lines of advancing educational equity and making college application advising more accessible. Hope this helps!
