Jeremy Michael’s Answer
When I was applying to colleges, I tried to tie my outside experiences with my major. I applied to a LOT of different majors (global studies, marketing, computer science, design) and while it is not required for them to be relevant, it definitely helps if it is. If it is general volunteering/extra curriculars, put them in! I wasn't the smartest student but I know for sure that it helps your application the more you put on. I applied to 13 schools out of high school and I got into 9. Some of the schools I got into are Boston University, University of California Santa Barbara, San Diego State University, and University of Hawai'i at Manoa (where I ended up choosing). I was involved in a wide range of activities, and some of the stuff I wrote down include Key Club, Dance, Band, Sports, and specific volunteer events that had an impact. Good luck in what you do!
