Could work study count as extracurricular?

    During undergrad I worked as the news editor at my school paper, and I was an anatomy tutor as well. These were paid work study jobs on campus, although they barely paid anything ($1,600 total for the whole academic year). But I did them because I was more interested in building my resume rather than the money.

    Should I list these as work experiences or extracurricular experience on my application?

    Thanks!

    You were paid, therefore work experience.

    work experiences are those you were paid. Extracirricular are unpaid activities (shadowing, TA, clubs, volunteering, leadership)
