Best Extracurriculars for College Applications

Even with perfect grades and standardized test scores, you will still need to ensure that your application can stand out in the sea of other applications when it comes time to apply to college. While colleges used to seek well-rounded students, they now build well-rounded classes, and look for students who excel in one particular area. Whether you are an elite-student athlete who runs free sports camps over the summer, an entrepreneurship student at Wharton’s summer program or a musician who offers composition advice on your growing Youtube channel; extracurriculars give you an avenue to show that you put time and effort into your passions! Check out the resources below to learn how to build a strong extracurricular profile!
