Above and Beyond?

Most of the schools I'm planning on applying to are really competitive and prestigious. While I have many planned targets and safeties those are the schools I really want to go to! What can I do to make my extracurriculars and just resume in general more impressive? How can I go above and beyond in Junior year?

Some tips:

-do some sat/act prep and take one/both tests (won't go on resume, but will def help)

-be an active member! by this, i mean participate in a lot of the events and do a lot of the activities (i say "a lot" and not "all" because scheduling conflicts are inevitable). in other words, don't just show up.

I'm in the same boat as you. I've been researching and I've found that creating a passion project can really boost your application success. It might be a bit difficult balancing your project between other academics but it also gives you the freedom of dedicating time to something you're really interested in. Also try to build good connections with others especially with seniors who are "above your league" Most of them are extremely willing to help and recommend local opportunities for you.
