I am a freshman now and I want to know what sort of things I should be doing so that when it comes time to send out applications I will stand out among other applicants. #college-admissions #university-applications

Hi Nada! I'm a sophomore in college, and some things you can do to make your university application stand out is to do extracurricular activities, such as participating in clubs, or volunteering for something that is related to your major, or if possible, get an internship somewhere to try to get experience! Most colleges will love it that you are involved in activities in school AND outside of it. Also, when you're applying, make sure to write an awesome essay! The essay is one of the ways you can distinguish yourself from other applicants. Hope this helps! Albert P. Translate

Hi Nada!


It's good that you're thinking about college now. If you already know the schools you want to apply to - take a look at their admissions section to learn more about their requirements. Besides that, here are a couple of ways you can stand out!


Get involved in school and within your community - but find leadership roles. You can even start a program at your school - colleges want to see how you've made a difference.


Take pre-AP and AP courses - colleges want to see that you can handle tough classes.


Start building relationships with your teachers (or boss) so they know you as a person rather than just a name - their recommendation letters will help the admissions team get another perspective on you.


Get a job - colleges want to see if you can balance work and school


Your essay is the best way to stand out - I know that won't happen until your Senior year - but you can start jotting down experiences - so when it comes down to write it, you're ahead of the game.


Keep up with your grades!
