About this livestream
Community service is a great way to give back while demonstrating to colleges that you have the qualities necessary to be a good peer on campus and in the community.
It's also a good topic to think about over summer, when you have more free time to make a bigger impact in your communities. This Tuesday, Shravya will discuss her experience with community service, and how you can enhance your current service profile.
She'll also cover how community service has changed during the COVID era, and offer some advice for integrating your activities into your essays in order to present yourself in the best light possible to admissions officers!
Undergrad College: Rice University '20
Work Experience: During my time at Rice, I mentored dozens of high school students through the college application process, along with editing essays and tutoring students for the ACT/SAT. I also interned at a medical technology startup, conducted research in Brazil, and gave a TEDx talk. I recently finished applying to medical school; I've been admitted to multiple schools, and will be starting in the Fall.
My Admissions Story: I remember feeling very blindsided by the admissions process and not knowing where to begin. I hope that sharing my experiences and some of the things I’ve learned along the way will help guide other students in a similar boat.
