Choose ec's you're interested in! Now's the time to explore your interest and they don't have to be related to your major!

Here are some from the top of my head:

HOSA

FIRST Robotics

Vex Robotics

part-time job

FBLA

USACO

AIME

starting a blog/youtube channel

starting a club at your school

any other club at your school

sports

self-studying anything: APs, languages, etc.

internships

None of your ECs have to do with 'finance' or 'statistics'.

Therefore I would pick ECs that are more focused on your area of interest.

For example. Get a software program that shows you have expertise in statistical modeling or start a finance club at your school where you regularly discuss finance topics like trading stocks for example.

Please note that none of the elite colleges with the exception of UPenn Wharton are going to offer a major in Finance per se because that is normally covered under grad school when you get an MBA. But you can still major in economics or econometrics or statistics.

Good luck.
