Why Do I Need Extracurricular Activities?
Gaining admission to the world’s top universities gets more competitive every year — meaning admissions officers must consider the whole package when determining which applicants get to attend their university. Grades and SAT scores are a gauge of one’s academic ability, and supplemental essays can paint a good picture of the applicant’s personality and background; but nothing is more important in demonstrating your passions, interests and leadership potential than your extracurricular activities!
