What AP Classes and extracurriculars will help me as a Psychology major?

I am looking at schools such as UVA, NYU, Yale, and Rice. I don't currently meet the extracurricular standards or AP Class standards, what can I do?

What grade are you in?

What extracurriculars are you interested in? The best thing you can do for extracurriculars is to find some things you care about and dedicate a good chunk of time to them, especially if they give you the chance to show responsibility and leadership.

The best thing you can do for AP standards is to take AP classes. If your school does not offer AP classes then take the most rigorous classes that are available to you.

Hope this helps!
