I'm not sure if anyone has tried, but if I somehow mange to be really good at DDO, would that help my college application?
Idk, feel like I would have to only debate serious stuff though...

It's a reasonable thought because it says a lot about yourself that you're on a debate website trying to express and expand on your opinion. Kudos to you on that. But no colleges won't give a damn about this.

Being in the top 10-25% of your class helps. Scoring high in the sat and act helps. Writing an impressive essay for college admission helps.

I'm like 99% sure that you can't put DDO on a college application...

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

In essence, the world is fucked up and you can either ignore it, become cynical or bitter about it.

I put it on my job application and my employer was really impressed by it.

Probably depends on the college's priorities. On my UCAS form (the centralised application form for all UK universities) I put debating, but not DDO. No idea if it helped though.
I'm back (ish).

Interesting. So I could mention it so my cements interest for debating and whatnot and has more support to that claim, but directly stating it will do nothing?

Not likely. This is a social entertainment site. Nothing about it is official or accredited.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken
