What are 'Good' Extracurriculars?

Wednesday 8th June, 4.30-5.30pm
US college applications are famously holistic, meaning that admissions officers look at a student's whole profile, not just their grades. This means colleges care about what students do outside of school - their extracurricular activities. But what actually matters? What level do they have to be at in say sports or music? And what qualities do colleges look for? In this webinar Jason Smith (UES) will discuss with Jim Reddy (Head of US Applications at Uppingham School) about what successful US applicants do to enhance their profiles.
