Common App activities section
Do I have to fill out the Activities section on Common App if I attach a Resume?
P/S any tips to up my resume as an average student with no work experience?
Hi there @Keziah,
Yes, you should still manually fill out your Activities section if you upload a resume. Not every school will accept or look through a resume, but the Activities section is a standard, localized region in the application that admissions officers will be checking.
To improve your resume, I'd suggest digging deeper into your current involvements. Are there any clubs or organizations where you can gain a leadership position? Is there a passion or hobby you can develop further by turning it into a small business or community service project? Here is a comprehensive list of extracurriculars you can try: https://blog.collegevine.com/your-complete-list-of-extracurricular-activities/
I moved schools so I'm starting senior year elsewhere. I'm part of a club and I'm trying to join another so I'll try to climb up if I can. Thank you
