Scholarship Myth #7: Be involved in as much as possible

Myth: The more activities I’m involved in, the better. 

We worship burnout and overcommitment in America, but thankfully, many scholarships don’t. Be involved in many activities you love, for sure, but it’s just as impressive to be extremely talented and involved in just a few activities as it is to be in a dozen or more. Don’t burn out now just to please someone else—and don’t do it in the future, either. Focus on what you love!
