Not everything you do in your spare time accounts for meaningful extracurricular involvement in the eye of a college admissions officer. As Yale College Undergrad Admissions advises to students, your extra-curricular profile ideally should demonstrate three things: You “engage your community beyond the classroom”; you “take leadership positions when they are available”; and you “demonstrate a deep commitment to and genuine appreciation for what you spend your time doing”. To maximize your extra-curricular experiences while strengthening your candidacy, thoughtful planning and a healthy dose of creativity are often required.
