ECs for Ivies?

I am a UK student and I want to apply to Ivies but don't have many extracurriculars, as they aren't as important here as they are in the US. What advice do you guys have? If any of you are applying or have successfully applied before what kind of things did you do/are you doing?

    US unis will evaluate you in context- few countries put the emphasis on ECs that the US does. But be aware that at top level a lot of your compatriots will have things beyond the classroom to point to- maybe not the laundry list that US applicants might, but something with some depth.
