Importance of Extracurriculars in Admission-- How Would I Stack Up?
This question is no doubt overdone, but I'm going to do it again.
I want to apply to top law schools, namely Harvard and Stanford. Assuming I was able to get a top LSAT score (170-175) and a solid undergrad institutional GPA (3.7-4.0, though not from a top school), how would ECs factor into my admissions opportunity?
As it stands, I am a debater in LD and Parli, I do extemporaneous speaking, I am on the varsity tennis team, and I am a regularly-cast actor at my university's theatre department.
I also plan to get involved with the school's newspaper.
Are these positions enough to not hurt me in the process? I didn't really run for student government, mainly because I don't have much time. Is this a mistake?
