Hey i was just wondering..do colleges know what schools require their students to do volunteer work in order to graduate or to get some time of award. In my school, there is no incentive to volunteer..you don't need to do it to graduate or to get a special award. In fact, this guy in another High School has to do 300 hours to graduate. Will colleges consider it more highly than my 100-200 hours. Even though I was not required to volunteer. Do the admission people know what schools require it and which ones don't do they give special consideration for the people that didn't have to do it.
THanks

hmm, I'm not quite sure if whether or not they would be aware of the circumstances. However, I would think that if they did, you would be the more favored.

Colleges would know...as high schools are required to submit high school transcripts, which include graduation requirements.
