see, here's the deal, I want to see what you can do that applies to my world. being tough is good, wearing a leotard and getting a housewife to do sittups, not so much.
I'd throw tough mudder into the same category as triathlons/marathons/etc. so I agree that'd be good to put on.
Being a personal trainer is a business. I don't see how it would be a bad thing to put that I manage a small business in my free time on a resume.

Why is that?
What is your job? Honestly if you cannot truly be an integral leader in a club, I wouldn't waste the time - being a part of an organization and just standing around at bake sales doesn't stand out, it seems that you really will not be able to get farther in such a short amount of time. Staying in school longer to participate and get a slightly better GPA doesn't seem rational to me at all; I'd find it would look better to be doing something more productive, just be able to explain why you may have done poorly during your undergrad.
Well I'm going back to school anyways part time for nondegree work. I'm trying to transition into finance. I've been reading about investment banking which would be an overall goal but at this time I'm just trying to get any job in the field that could be helpful to that career path.
So I figure I should be doing stuff in my free time to make up for the fact that I have a shitty GPA at a no-name school and little experience in finance as a profession. I'm also trying to think of community stuff I could do but it's tough.
In the end, looking good doesn't hurt either.
Just bought a new suit this weekend, made sure it would accommodate for another 5-10lbs of muscle gain.
I'm trying to line up some informational interviews with people at RW Baird and Wells Fargo this week, so maybe I can ask them for tips or see if they'd get me in contact with whomever the hiring managers are.
If anyone works in this field, either in a role where you would be reviewing resumes or otherwise, I'd appreciate it if you could PM me and we could talk more about it!
