What types of extracurriculars/ organizations to be involved in
I'm about to start my second semester of freshman year, and the only thing I'm really involved in at the moment is a political internship type thing, but I am in charge of all the interns on campus so it has kept me super busy and I wanted to adjust to the workload before getting involved in more things in fear of jeopardizing my GPA. The internship will continue over the summer and end in August, and I have an internship at a law firm set up for next summer as long as my GPA doesn't plummet, but I am trying to make a plan of what to get involved in sophomore year. I am planning on joining a volunteer group (which I will also get involved in second semester of this year) and I will participate in a program where I basically mentor a refugee child, but I am not sure if this is enough or I guess "special" enough since t14 law schools look for people who really stand out. If someone could tell me what got them/ someone they know into a top law school or just has advice on involvement in general, that would be great. Thank you.
