What are some activities you recommend to make my application stand out?
HI, I am a sophomore in high school and I want to know what activities will make me stand out. I am currently in NHS, interact, our school's newspaper club, and speech and debate. I have not yet decided what I am majoring in college. However, I am thinking of going in the direction of computer science.
There are so many things you could do! Just look around. If you see a need to reduce income barriers for coding, you could start a youth robotics program for inner-city kids. You could partner with a local non-profit, recruit and hire instructors, source equipment, and continue expanding your program to accommodate more students. This would show that you have ambitious goals and know how to take action to achieve them.
There are many things you can do to make your application stand out like sports, internships, speech and debate competitions and stuff like that and also what you can also do to improve your applications is by creating clubs. Im assuming your school has coding or anything computer related classes take those.
