Chance thread with an emphasis on extracurriculars

<p>Someone suggested I move this to the chances thread, so if anyone can offer some advice I'd really appreciate it.</p>

<p>So I've recently perused the common app, and I'm having difficulty deciding which extracurriculars to include and evaluating whether or not my extracurriculars as a whole are suitable for the schools I'm applying to. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

<p>well it look good but you have not done much regarding biomed engineering which might hurt you but it looks good overall...chance me back?( i have no idea how to attach links though lol but its somewhere on this page)</p>

<p>Alright thanks I'll take a look at your thread. I don't have any extracurriculars related to biomed engineering, but I think my courseload reflects some interest (AP Bio and physics junior year, AP physics, Calc BC, and AP chemistry senior year)</p>
