My first thread! Hey SF, I couldn't find much from searching and wanted your opinions on this. Basically, I've heard from everyone and their mothers that volunteering is essential for post-secondary, and that marks don't matter as much as everyone thinks. In fact, I've even seen one poster on here type on hiring people and mentioning how they would hire a straight B student with volunteer work over a straight A student. (I digress; wouldn't the A student have used the time that the B student volunteered to ... study?) So my questions are, how important is volunteering (to get to a good school, when looking for a job, etc.)? What is the easiest way to get credits? Experiences, fun facts, any info shared is much appreciated. Thanks guys.
