4 Sample Transcript

5 Extra-Curricular Activities  Freshman year of high school: Freshman year is the perfect time to taste and explore  Sophomore year of high school: Sophomore year is the time to pare down and focus your activities to three or four projects or areas of interest based on what you really enjoy.  Junior year of high school: By the time you hit your junior year, you should be well settled in favorite activities. If, however, you haven't done that, it is never too late to get involved. Look for ways to make a difference -- become an officer or leader, and especially go beyond just being a member of a club or activity.  Senior year of high school: Since going through the college application process will take up a lot of free time, be sure that your extracurricular involvements are those that you really enjoy and are meaningful to you.  Summers during your high school years: Colleges are very interested in what students do during summer vacations. Any indication that you have done nothing more than play video games, watch television, get a good suntan or just hang out with friends is not going to please admissions officers.
