    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Don't all hate but...

    I'm actually thinking about joining TKD just to get a black belt in a year (because apparently, it only takes a year for one at the local studio) so I can put it on my college app. And then throw it away.

    I think it'll make my app stronger when tied with what I did for Wrestling (showing... dedication! As all my college advisers say)

    Think it'll help?

    Never done TKD, looks like fun but you're only doing it to help a collage application is that the best way to use those hours? Are you getting perfect grades? that would seem a much better use of time

    Your SAT scores are going to be far more important than a tdk black belt. Also you can take community college courses starting your HS jr. Year its a good way to spend a summer and a great way to show a college that you can manage a college level course.

    They are about equal nowadays. No, don't get me started.

    Any school for which a TKD black belt is a deciding factor on your application should be avoided at all costs.
