How can I make my application stand out during Corona?

I am a freshman, and I want to know how to make my application stand out during corona. If I’m going to work hard to get into a prestigious university, how do I make myself stand out during these times when I can’t sign up for clubs, attend sports, etc? Heck knows what’s going to happen to collegeboard and all their SAT/ACT problems right now! Will I even be able to take the SAT in the coming years?? I guess I could make a game or write a blog, but all those activities are a gamble, and it only matters if I do gain popularity. I don’t know if I’ll ever make it and if I’m just wasting time on projects that no one will ever see.

Agreed I believe this summer CB and ACT will try to make a e-version or SAT and ACT and eventually return to normal with in 2 years.

Try looking into a club that you deeply care about not necessarily your major such as track field or environment club. Then look into a club or activities you can do related to your major such as build a website if you are interested in computer science. If you join a club look to get a officer position in junior or senior year
