Community Service

Hey so I have done community service over the past years of HS. Do you think 136.45 hours of community service is too much or too little?

Note these hours are from specific extracurriculars, all related to teaching high school/middle school/ elementary school students via different times and places. Ex. elementary schools + middle school + library. ( I am becoming a teacher myself, a law professor) Is there a place on the Common App that specifically says to describe what I did in my community service? Ex. I would obviously put “taught _______”

We have a detailed overview of how to position community service in your application on our Blog. It emphasizes the importance of focusing on what you did, and accomplished, rather than the raw number of hours, but also addresses the number of hours:

As a rough guideline, anything between 50 and 200 hours is going to sound impressive and show that you have made a commitment.
