Extracurriculars don't match!!
Hi everyone, I am in a dilemma. For the first two years of high school, I gathered extracurriculars in science-oriented things because I thought I'd go into premed or something health-related. Now, in junior year, I realized I don't want to go into science but perhaps corporate law or something in the law field. The problem is, I can get internships and a summer program but I don't have any related extracurriculars. I have a neuroscience club and participated in the oncology olympiad, but I have not participated in things like debate or Model UN. This could hurt my chances, right? Should I apply as a science major and switch after I get accepted? Has anyone else experienced this?3 replies
