Is this a good extracurricular?
I'm in 9th Grade, at an IB High School in MI. I have a 4.0 and I want to get into Princeton, Harvard, and other schools like that.
Interests: I have way too many major plans. I could major in pre-med neuroscience, or financial operations, or poli sci.
The Extracurricular: Mayor's Youth Council for Grand Rapids. Look it up if you need to.
Also: if anyone could recommend strong extracurriculars too, that would be great.
** ALSO ** please tell me if this coursework for 9th Grade is appealing to colleges. Please be honest. And keep in mind that these are IB courses.

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.
As a junior in high school, I would say I'm impressed with the workload you are taking in! Creating a good profile for colleges to start reviewing you now is so smart and I applaud you for taking these steps. The strongest extracurriculars to get yourself into would be student government, internships, and volunteer work. Colleges love to see students who get involved with helping their school and community.
