Extracurricular Activites? - How many does someone need?

I have a 3.941 GPA and plan to get a 32-34 on the ACT. I'm currently in around 4 extracurricular activities;

- FIRST Robotics

- 3D Printing (a new club at my school)

- Science Olympiad

- NHS (National Honor Society)

How many extracurricular activities does someone need to get into a college that takes 32-34's? I still have some time and was wondering which ones would be best to take for around 1 1/2 years.

Focus on quality over quantity! Become part of the innovation in your extracurriculars. Focus on leadership roles, participation, and take advantage of every opportunity. Hope the best for you!

It's usually more about the quality of your extracurriculars than the quantity, I would suggest looking for leadership positions in the clubs you are a part of and prehaps applying to summer programs in the area you are interested in majoring in for an additional extracurricular.
