How to verify sports statistics & community service work?
People reading your Applicant Advantage profile may want to go even deeper into your accomplishments. As a best practice we suggest supply as much information to verify your accomplishments as possible.
For sports statistics and accomplishments we suggest including links to the information that have been verified by outside sources. For example, include the links to your Perfect Game, NCSA or club’s profile.
Community service is also much harder to verify than school records. Include letters of reference and contact information whenever possible.
