studyin abroad or volunteering abroad

<p>I am trying desperately to transfer to Berkeley in the Haas Business Administration program.</p>

<p>I am too poor to afford a full blown out study abroad program.</p>

<p>I was thinking of doing a cheaper alternative like doing habitat for humanity in South America for 3 weeks.</p>

<p>Will this drastically help me get into Berkeley.</p>

<p>Current GPA 3.7
Honors Program
Extra Curricular Activities are:
Internship at Local Business
Volunteer Service at the Hospital
and Community College Business Club and Honors Club</p>

<p>i'm no expert but i'll give my two cents.</p>

<p>your gpa is on the low side.</p>

<p>but your extra cur. seems good. the volunteer abroad will help here.</p>

<p>i'd say make sure you explain why you did all these, and don't say you did it to get into haas. talk about your passions and life goals, and explain how all your extra curricular was to help you with these passions / life goals (and not just to get into berkeley).</p>
