To get into your college of choice, you’ll need to stand out from other applicants, and highlighting the qualities that you have that match what the admissions team is looking for will do just that. Extra-curricular or school activities where you planned events or managed people show organizational and leadership skills that will boost your application.
Similarly, you can benefit by highlighting your language skills – whether that is your ability to write clearly or speak a foreign language. If those skills seem unrelated to your application, remember they are considered valuable in any field of study.
Finally, if you have any experiences that show your initiative – like volunteering, community service, or studying abroad – you’ll stand out as a self-starter and eager learner…both traits that colleges want in their students.
