Will schools grown upon that I'm isolated from my school ?
I live in an apartment and attend college. I am supporting myself, so I have a full time job as a waiter. I still maintain a 4.0 gpa despite 42 hours of work, but I feel like when I transfer or apply for grad school, they will frown upon that I'm so isolated like no EC's and all since I'm a student workaholic. Been living by myself since freshman year of college and now starting junior year.

Once you put down that you have a full time job and work 42 hours a week while still being able to maintain a 4.0, they won't care that you didn't have much to show for ECs. A person can only stretch themselves so far.

Being a workaholic is good for grad school. They don't care as much about your ability to be part of the community as they do about your ability do lots of work, especially if you want to go into a research-based grad program.
