Is it too late for me to join major clubs?
Hi, I'm an incoming junior at my high school! I was thinking about another club or two that I could join next year, and I'm considering choosing something out of DECA, Mock Trial, and Debate. I really love all three, but with my hectic schedule, I may only do one of them. I feel almost peer pressured to do DECA because I have a lot of (successful) friends that I look up to doing it, not to mention that it's the biggest club on our campus and well known to be the "smart/successful kid club." The DECA kids I know are fully infatuated and dedicated to the club. I did think about doing it as a sophomore, but I chose LEO Club instead. Is it too late for me to join something like this? I don't want to do it if it's just going to be a waste of my time, but I don't want to feel left out either. Please help!3 replies
