where are we going to school '25? πŸŽ‰

freshman in hs here but where did we all commit? So proud of the seniors who survived this insane cycle. By 2024 when I graduate hs, I'll bet the acceptance rates will be like .1% πŸ˜‚

btw no shame here, everyone will do amazing things ✨

There isn't a specific type of EC that is ideal or the best. You just should have a spike in the field you are interested in. ie, if you are going into STEM, you should try to join science olympiad or science bowl or something related to science. You should also try to get a leadership position in whichever EC you are in.

ECs that generally look good are: debate, speech, BPA/DECA, caution: a lot of people also do these activities, so they may become ordinary after a certain point.

Another thing to keep in mind is that no matter how good your ECs are if your grades are not where they should be, you are less likely to get accepted. I know someone who placed 2nd in the national high school robotics competition and wanted to go into STEM. But their GPA was 3.75 -ish, so they didn't get accepted into a top school like they had planned. Work on your grades first, and then on your ECs. Best of luck to you!!
