What are some ways to establish thematic threads throughout an application?
Hi, all! I'm technically not yet in high school, just very paranoid about my future—I don't know how that affects the urgency of this post—but I think this is something that'll ultimately be helpful to others in these forums. Through some perusing of advice blogs from the internet's college counselors, I found a general consensus to be that developing a sort of 'theme' through your apps (a general outline of your character or academic interests, I think) is generally helpful. I feel like that makes sense, especially considering admissions officers' hunt for 'character'. However, I'm confused as to how this is done. Is there a way to create a potent theme or is it mostly the part of the officers' intuition?

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Well first you need tk think about what interests you. Then get involved with activites and take classes that reflect those interests. For instance, if you want to major in computer science, you should take cs classes and get involved with activites like robotics, programming or coding clubs, etc. If you want to major in biology, join a biology club, get involved with biology research and take biology and science classes.
