Is my application too diverse?
Answered

I have an interest in one field but many of my extracurriculars are in different subjects. I really like all of them and I am not willing to drop any, but does this damage my chances?

No, of course not!

The truth is colleges want to see what you're passionate about and your interests. If you really enjoy them and love doing them keeping doing it!

So I face a similiar issue but you should try to find a common theme as shown in this video

It should not diminish your chances especially if you have a major related EC or have significant achievements in them. Just make sure the ECs are impactful and not a 30 minute meeting once a month.

Refer to a previous post I answered by takyu about what colleges look for.
