I'm a little worried about applying to college. I have a couple years before I need to go to college, but I'm a little freaked out about the application forms. Many of the forms ask you if you have any special skills like playing an instrument or being a part of any extracurricular activities. I don't play any instruments or participate in any after school activities (I don't know which ones are available yet). I'm not a straight A student, I get mostly As and Bs, so I'm worried about getting into a good college or university. I'm currently learning another language. If I can read and write English and Chinese, would that help my chances of getting in? What else can I do? Does doing volunteer hours help?
