Is it okay if many of my extra curricular activities are really similar?

I'm a student transferring from community college. Is it okay if many of my extra curricular activities are kind of the same. i.e. If I had multiple publications, could I list each of them separately? Or should I group them into one extra curricular? Does it make a difference if they're all the same or different genres?

So it depends on your profile size if you have a bunch of ECs consolidate them if you are lacking some spreading them out is a good idea its like winning Org X robotics and winning Org Y robotics they are different and you receive awards for both but are both robotics. But the same paper so a recurring article in Magizine A should not really be split up but if it is a highly renowned newspaper such as a large cit news paper or even national and you got something published 2x splitting is fine.

Ask if you have further questions. Id be happy to help.
