what extracurriculars look best on college applications if you want to double major in journalism and political science?
i am a high school junior, so luckily i still have some time to add some more extracurriculars, but i also don't want to look like i started anything this late in my hs career just so they'll look good when i apply to colleges. currently, i am a member of student council, DECA, and Varsity Cheer. i wanted to start a chapter of High School Democrats of America, but i wasn't sure if many people in my area would be interested in that.

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.
You can look into what skills a specific college values and choose your activities accordingly. If you just want to choose what activities you think are best for you now and see which colleges match best with that, then follow your heart. There is no right answer here, just a preference for long-term or short-term goals. Believe in yourself even though they might not approve of it. Being confident is what you need right now to accompany you with this.
I hope I helped and good luck! :)
