Sophomores and Juniors: Prepare Now

I’m often asked what “undergraduate” high school students can do to give them a better chance to get into college besides getting good grades. Colleges are looking for a well-rounded students and that includes participating in extracurricular activities. Many students associate extracurricular activities with sports. However, there are many other after-school clubs and organizations that students should get involved in, such as school plays and the newspaper. You don’t have to be an actor or writer to be a part of the “action”. You can help design a play’s set or collect advertisement revenues for the paper. Is there a Young Republican Club at your high school? If not, why don’t you start one? Remember to write about your experiences in a diary or just make notes, so you will have something interesting to write about on your college applications. It’s a good idea to take a look at the Common Application to find out what information on extracurricular activities are required.
