How to Get Into College: Our Community Service Survey

College info graph

While there are a million resources on how to improve your SAT score, there's little guidance about how to impress a college with your volunteer hours.

Therefore, DoSomething.org has returned with its annual The Community Service and College Study. We surveyed admissions counselors at over half of the top 50 colleges (according to US News World and Report).

If you sign up to read the survey, you'll view informational graphics (like the one above), and you'll learn the answer to questions like:

  • Which words impress a college counselor reading an application?
  • Do colleges consider working on a political campaign to be community service?
  • How far back should a student document his or her community service?

Get the answers to these questions and more by checking out the survey now!
