UBC supplemental applications

A photo of Justin604 Justin604
Hey for those of you who have applied to UBC and filled out a supplemental application I was just wondering what type of extracurriculars do you people have? I hear how important it is to have strong extracurriculars but it appears as if most of the questions aren't asking for specific extracurriculars. More like what qualities you possess, one significant event.

You don't need to include your ECs in your essay question section..
There's a complete other section for you to list 10 ECs.
but I did hear that they will really only look at your first few, so put the most important ones first.

Some things that I'm going to include on mine include..
Student Council...
Executive member of a school based club that is now a non-profit organization..
and Key Volunteer representing my school for an International Children's Festival.

I'm not big into the extra-curriculars but I did manage to put these in:

I spent over 200 hours over the summer volunteering abroad teaching English.
I volunteered at my local library every week for a period of six months.
I'm in Student Council.
I participate in coastal cleanups with my Global Issues club.
I've volunteered at a few full weekend events, such as the Cloverdale Rodeo and Earthsave's Taste of Health.
I also have a part-time job in which I work 15 hours+ a week.

The UBC Arts supp app only requires five ECs and two paragraph answers. I put two academic, one volunteering, one work, and one athletic to diversify.
