I'm currently a Junior about to be a Senior and I haven't had any internships or anything that will make me stand out. I have good grades and take challenging courses like AP. I don't do sports but I participate in clubs. What should I do to get easy internships or experiences that will interest colleges?

    Internships are not a necessity for college admissions. Unless you plan on applying to T20s, an internship is not necessary. Especially with COVID, internships for high schooler's are few and far between. Even for a T20, many students get in without internships.

    I agree that internships are not at all necessary to get into a great school. I think given the economic climate the county is going to be in, any kind of job this summer will be viewed positively. Work on things that are in your control, and don’t worry about things that are not in your control.
