I am currently a freshman in high school i have good grades (Usually straight A's or a few high B's). I do not currently have any extracurriculars though. I am in honers classes and I am in a sort of "gifted" program the gives you tougher classes and is focused around engineering and sciences. Is there anything I can do to make my application stand out and look great so that I can get into a great college. I do not play any sports.

    Extracurriculars! They are the only thing you can do to enhance your application (besides continuing to take advanced courses, and doing well on standardized tests when the time comes). They're also how you stand out from the thousands of others with applications just like yours.
