Do colleges such as Harvard think choir is a blowoff class?

depends on how seriously you do it.

I did choir, and I think it helps...if, like the other people said, you take it seriously.

I did choir and got into Yale and Princeton, though I didn't apply to Harvard. Like others have said, it depends on your commitment (leadership, time spent). My choir was a very good one--as good as many colleges--though in the end nobody will know the difference when reading the applications. I was a serious voice student and sent in a cd of my singing...that may have been the factor that leaned in my favor.

Yeah, like Yrickson said, I was a serious voice student (student conductor of the honor choir). But I think that being in choir is a really valuable experience, and I think if you take it seriously, colleges will see that you've applied a lot of time in it, and hopefully, they'll appreciate that.
