I need help to make my application look better

I'm a rising junior but haven't done many extracurriculars or been consistent with anything to show in my college applications. I was so lost these past two years in high school that when I realized that I needed to do more extracurriculars and be more involved it was too late. I really want to get into a really good college but I have a 4 weighted GPA and a 3.5 unweighted GPA. I really don't know where or how to start.

Hey @Stuthi_07 I'm also a rising Junior in High School. I can totally relate and understand your frustration. But, good thing is that it's never too late to do extra-curricular. I suggest choosing a few clubs in your HS that interests you and trying to gain a leadership position. You don't need to be a president or vice-president, just try to be heavily involved in those clubs. Also, I highly recommend you do summer programs or take online courses this summer, practice for SAT.

It is overwhelming but remember it's never too late to do anything. I'm sure that now that you have realized that you need to start thinking about colleges and stuff, you're in the right place to start this journey! :)

Hope that helps!

I really appreciate it. I started an internship recently and finished a summer program. So after I realized about how important extracurriculars are, I started doing things this summer. ThankYou so much.
