About this livestream


In this stream, Shravya Kakulamarri gives you the breakdown on extracurriculars! You'll learn how to enhance your extracurricular profile and receive advice on approaching extracurriculars, so that you can develop a "spike" rather than the all-too-common "renaissance" profile.

Shravya will give you a rundown on how to cultivate a strong narrative through your extracurriculars, and administer plenty of tips and tricks you'll need in order to find your spike and make your profile stand out to admissions officers.

You'll be able to drop all your admissions-related questions in the chat so that Shravya can give you personalized advice and direction on your ECs.
