How do I put my community service hours in Common App?
Answered

I'm currently stuck as I don't know how to put my service hours in the Activities section of Common App. I didn't do weekly volunteer work so I don't know what to put in my weekly hours.

Also, English isn't my first language so sorry for any errors in advance and this is my first time posting here so sorry if I formatted/tagged anything wrong.

I'm not too familiar with Common App, but I'm fairly sure you can write it in as an extracurricular and manually describe your experience. You can also talk about it in your essays and in the "Additional Information" section. Hope this helps :)
