thank you- this was so helpful! love it

This thread is very helpful!

This thread was really helpful! I am currently a rising junior at Harvard University, and the best thing I did junior year was explore new extracurricular opportunities. I joined my school’s mock trial team, participated in National History Day, and hosted a community tree-planting event through the non-profit Tree-Plenish (Highly recommend)!
