Confused student needs advice

Hell ya'll, Im a rising sophomore a large southern public school and I am looking for advice onto what I should do (ie extracurriculars) in order to get into a top tier business school, I'll give you a brief background. I originally came into the school as a Pre-med major and after a month into the school year i realized that science was not my calling. I was in the process of pledging a fraternity and the fact that I struggled with the classes led me to receive a 2.88 GPA at the end of my first semester. I came back home during break and decided that I wanted to pursue a career in business, so I became a dual major in Finance and also Real Estate. I enjoyed all my classes and worked hard to earn a 3.55 GPA for the semester, leaving me with a 3.24 GPA at the end of my first year of college. My overall goal for a GPA when I leave college is a 3.6+ and I know that that is a definite possibility with my future classes. The question I have to ya'll is what other quest should I pursue as an undergrad? I plan to join the Real Estate club but is there any other programs or things I should look into to help boost my resume for Business school? If it makes any difference my goal is to work in commercial real estate when Im done with graduate school. Thanks for any help

    Right off the bat, you should strongly reconsider going into commercial real estate. The only time you didn't improperly capitalize "real estate" was when you mentioned commercial real estate. Sounds to me like your heart is elsewhere.
