Greetings fellow PFers, I just have a few questions about graduate school applications. I have a reasonable application as far as LoRs, grades, research experiences, etc. but I think there's one thing that may be my downfall: extracurricular activities. I've done a few small things like physics club and astronomy club, but in both of those I was the only member so I didn't hang around long. The main thing that I participate in outside of school is church-related activities. I attend and sometimes help lead a Bible study and help out at the food pantry as well as sing in the choir and volunteer wherever I'm needed. I'm a bit torn on whether or not to include these on my application. Maybe they show leadership potential or good character or something, but at the same time I'm wondering if admissions committee members will be biased against someone religious participating in the sciences.
