I was involved in a community-oriented but school run leadership group freshman and sophomore year; however, as a junior I have not really participated in it at all. The catch is, I've been telling my parents that i have been involved all year to get them off my back. This will inevitably lead to me writing up my application to college and having to write that I did this EC junior year.
What are the usual policies/repercussions for a one-year stretcher lie? Also, what are the chances I get caught? I'm applying to mostly top 25 universities, what's the play here?
