Drop everything and enroll in the Journalism Class!!!

<p>Okay, maybe that was a teeny bit of an over-statement, but think about it. In all of the success stories I've heard about the top schools, all the students, as high schoolers, were involved in their school newspaper. </p>

<p>What about writing and editing for the school newspaper looks so good for college applications?</p>

<p>Maybe writing for the high school newspaper improves essays. </p>

<p>Though I think your statement is a generalization.</p>

<p>It might be a generalization, but I really think that taking part in the school newspaper would help... It's not like I'm making a racist joke :/</p>

<p>But I think that more than looking good, a person who enjoys writing enough to work on the school newspaper is probably a good writer and essays make a difference for students who are applying to the top schools. I have my master's in journalism.</p>
