How much weight would my extra-curriculars have?
I have pretty average stats for the top schools in the U.S., so my extracurriculars are really the only things setting me apart. I know I definitely want to major in business, more specifically marketing, and I’ve known I want to be in the fashion business since I was in seventh grade, so I’ve tried to make that clear in all of my activities. My main EC’s are owning a fashion business that I started two years ago which has taken up a lot of my time, placing first in professional selling at ICDC (the national competition) for DECA, I founded a fashion design club at my school which led to a school-wide dress drive for prom that my club collaborated with DECA on, I got accepted into a pre-college entrepreneurship program at Berkeley (my first choice school) that’s going to be taking place for two weeks in July, I founded an annual gallery for local artists and designers in Denver, and I also do freelance fashion photography as a sort of side hustle. I’m also thinking about running for an officer position at my school’s DECA chapter since I’m already so involved, but I’m currently in my second semester of junior year, so I wanted to know where I would theoretically stand in the eye’s of college admissions at top universities.7 replies
