What classes would be best to take in order to become an optometrist? What schools should I look into after high school graduation?

I am a freshman in high school and my dream job is to be an optometrist after witnessing my uncle lose his vision in the span of 3 years. I want to start planning my academic route but would like recommendations for classes. Also what schools give good degrees in biology and are more likely to get you accepted into an optometry school?

What are some solid extracurriculars for medical?

I am currently a sophomore in highschool and I am wondering what are some solid extracurriculars that revolve around medical? I am currently in the IB programme and trying to maintain high grades, but I don’t think my grades solely will be able to get me into a good university. Another question is would it be better to focus on my grades and try to get them to near perfect with simple extracurriculars? Or should I maintain the grades I have now and add unique extracurriculars?

How important are extracurriculars for admissions in CS in Pakistan, and for Master's abroad, and how do I find extracurriculars with limited opportunities and freedom ?

I feel really overwhelmed by how to find notable extracurricular activities, especially since I am a girl living in Pakistan and have limited freedom as well as limited money. I don't know where to even start to find internships, extracurriculars etc and my college does not offer anything. I want to know how to build a solid application for undergrad in Pakistan, if extracurriculars are important for universities such as NUST and NED, and how to find opportunities in order to apply for Master's abroad.

What are some good extracurriculars that can improve my chances of getting into a medical school as a high school student?

As the topic states, I have been trying to find a good bunch of extracurriculars that relate to the medical field. I currently do some volunteering as well as basketball on a local team (I heard group sports are always a bonus) and I was also planning on starting a NPO (Non-profit organization) revolving around mental health with some peers. As of now, nothing fits with the field I am aiming for. Are there any good extracurriculars that revolve around medical? I know extracurriculars aren't all that matters, but I still think it is a good idea to have organized extracurriculars that match the field you are planning to go into. Thank you!!

Do you need to be a leader (president, vice-president, treasurer, etc.) in any high school clubs you’re a part of to get into colleges?

I'm a part of multiple clubs but for most of them I don't have a leadership position but still contribute to helping them and consider myself a member of all the clubs I participate in. Would that affect my chances of getting accepted into college?

How do I find more hobbies to expand my scholarship applicability?

I'm only in 9th grade, so I know I have time, but I'm starting to think about college scholarships. I'm on a swim team but I'm not particularly fast compared to kids my age and even younger. I'm a straight A student but I know scholarships will require a little more than just academic success. How can I expand? Swim takes up a lot of time and I love it, so I'm not willing to sacrifice that, but I know I need to expand a little. I'm interested in musical theatre and singing, but struggling to find theatre opportunities for teens who are newer to the stage. How can I find something that'll work for me and make me a well rounded kid who's more applicable for scholarships?
