A quick definition of community service:

Community service is when someone does work for free to help their community. Sometimes, a judge might tell someone who did something wrong to do community service instead of going to jail. This means they have to do work that helps the community, like cleaning up a park or helping at a food bank. Schools might also ask students to do community service to help them learn and to make their community a better place. This can include things like tutoring other students or volunteering at a hospital.

A more thorough explanation:

Community service is when someone does work for free that helps their community. Sometimes, a judge might order someone who has broken the law to do community service instead of going to jail. This is called court-ordered community service. Usually, people who have not been in trouble before and who did not commit a violent crime are chosen to do community service.

Community service can also be a way for students to learn and help their community at the same time. This is called educational community service. Students work with local organizations to improve the lives of people in their community. They might help with things like healthcare, education, or public safety.

For example, a student might volunteer at a hospital to help sick people. Or they might tutor kids who need help with their homework. These are both examples of educational community service because the student is learning while they help their community.

anyone have advice on submitting an additional rec letter after WL even if the admissions officer said it's not necessary? rec letter is from someone affiliated with the school..
I would still do it
18:01
not someone claiming they got accepted from the SMU WL
One of my waitlist allowed me to submit a fifth letter of rec after submitting 4 in my initial applicstion
18:03
I just hope SMU gives me a chance once my test results post :’)
If it’s another prof, I would ask the law school if it’s okay if the new recommender submitted another letter directly to admissions team, if they say yes definitely go for it
18:05
I only have one LOCI for them left and I’m waiting to use it when my last results release, otherwise I would
