I have a question regarding extracurriculars. Can anybody help?
I am 21 years old and I will be applying to colleges next fall. Among the schools I'm interested in are Brown, Dartmouth, Lehigh, Duke, Rice and possibly Georgetown. I was homeschooled and graduated when I was 18 with a 3.8 GPA unweighted and I have a SAT score of 1510. But due to the fact that I was homeschooled, I had no extracurriculars. I've read that the only two colleges that this should be a big problem at is Brown and Dartmouth (and almost every Ivy League school.) Will not having any extracurriculars during my homeschool years be a severely negative factor in my admissions? I asked a question on Quora about it and I was told that because I'm in my early twenties and not still in high school, it may not be. Thanks for any answers.6 replies
