Admissions Advice

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.

I have a question: Is the Mayor's Youth Council an international ¨¨¨¨¨"club"? If so, do you know how can I apply to be part of it ?

I think it might be just in the US.. sorry. You can look it up in your city to check though!

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.
