For a Senior Year Activity, how many weeks per year?

Currently I have a job and want to include that in my activities section of the Common App. I got the job in July and have no plans of getting fired (lol) or quitting.

When asked how many weeks per year I spend on the activity, should I put 11, which is how long I've had it for, or put another amount?

Since you have 11 and there are 14 more weeks until the Common app Jan 1 deadlines are, I would put 25 if you think you are going to keep working there until you submit your application.

Or if you think you are only going to work until Thanksgiving make the adjustment and put the new total there.

Hope that helps.

Good Luck
