hey guys, my question is basically just the one listed above. I hope to get a math + econ double major or an econ major with a math and international relations double minor (if that's possible idk im an ignorant first gen lol), with hopes of primarily going into international law or governmental data/econ analysis.
so with that in mind, here are my extra curriculars (main).
chief financial officer for a foreign policy youth org
researcher & manager for a activist org revolving around asia that has ab 100k followers
internship at college revolving around math and its applications to physics (honestly hate physics but they didn't have a stats or econ and math internship and I was desperate)
math tutor at college (paid)
financial & business manager of family business
on college's asb, on high school's asb for all 4 yrs (same position all 3 years, but junior year I got VP position so I do a lot of the behind the scenes stuff & then senior year (this upcoming year) I get to be working with the school district as well).
student commissioner at county run organization (goals don't tie too well with my interest but the general policy making does)
been doing karate for 10 years, black belt, teaching for 5.
and lastly fun projects: make stupid historical fanfics on ao3, have a cultural archives account on instagram, and do MUN but a lot of the times it's too far for me to join the competitions :/
anyway, ik it's really not so massive as a lot of other people but I was wondering if these do seem to have a theme. I don't rly know if i'll be applying as a math major since I hate math comps and that's what a lot of math major applying ppl have in their resume soooo
I think that your extracurriculars show a cohesive spike relating to your major/minor interests. I think that you can make this theme stronger by talking about a clear career direction in your essays. Explain in particular why you are interested in the intersection of math, econ, and international relations, and your spike will be even clearer.
These are great! They most certainly align with your spike, so I don't think you really have to worry. Just make sure you pursue them long-term and try to gain as many leadership positions as possible.
Good luck! :)
I think your extracurriculars do have a theme. There's a good amount of math and economics stuff in there. I think they'll be great. No need to worry about them.
