Is it too late to join extracurriculars?

Hey everyone, I'm a junior and I'm starting to worry that I don't have enough extracurriculars to make my application stand out. Is it too late for me to join some clubs or activities now? Thanks in advance!

Hi there! It's never too late to get involved in extracurricular activities. While it's true that colleges like to see long-term commitment to clubs and organizations, they also appreciate students who show initiative and a willingness to try new things. As a junior, you still have time to make an impact in the clubs or activities you choose to join. Look for opportunities that align with your interests and passions, as this will make it easier for you to engage and contribute in a meaningful way. Plus, you'll be more likely to stick with the activity if you genuinely enjoy it. Don't be afraid to take on leadership roles or responsibilities within the club, as this can help demonstrate your dedication and personal growth. Good luck, and remember to have fun while exploring new extracurriculars!
