What are some good extra-curricular activities for getting in at UCLA?
Actually UCLA is just like any other major Division I school; And as there is no specific activities that will sway the admissions board to say "wow that kid did that activity just for us" well all activities look the same to all colleges, and there arent any that are better then others, except maybe in the duration and quality department.
What more do you need to get into USC if you're a sophomore with 3.5 all honors and AP classes and you're involved in extracurricular activities including NHS?
Why are colleges looking at extracurricular activities as a requirement for admission to their campuses?
A high school diploma or GED. It varies, but in general you have to demonstrate academic competence - this can come in the form of AP scores, IB scores, SAT scores, ACT scores, GPA, class rank, rigor of courseload, recommendation letters, and extracurricular activities/demonstration of good character.
It depends on what college you are trying to get into and is that your weighted, unweighted, or academic core GPA?? With that GPA you won't be able to get into a Ivy League school but you can still get into plenty of good colleges as long as you have good test scores and extracurricular activities! :)
"Like most mid-tier schools you would need a GPA of approximately 3.0+, good SAT scores, and a decent amount of extracurricular activities. and $25,000" I'm not sure who answered this question first but it's pretty far off the mark. VTs average GPA of freshmen is around 3.8, requires a pretty darn good SAT score... think around the 80th percentile, and extracurricular activities including charity/community service type activities. Family alumni and donations don't hurt your chances…
If you do really bad in 9th grade such as a 2.0 ish GPA and you do great in 10 11 12 can you go to a good college?
If your grades are very bad but have good SAT scores and participated in many extracurricular activities can you still get into a university preferably the university of Miami?
The purpose of having extra-curricular activities in schools is to broaden your knowledge of the world, give you something interesting to do, help you to learn a new skill, and yes, as the previous answerer suggested, if you take up a new hobby through ECAs, then it does look good on any application to University etc.
If you have a C average on your report card for the first quarter in an AP course do you still have any chance of being accepted into an Ivy League University?
If you did extremely poorly in high school what should you do in community college in order to have a good chance to be admitted to really good universities like NYU or UCLA and maybe Yale?
Honestly, your chances are fairly slim of gaining entrance to an ivy league school; that's just the reality of fierce competition. However, your odds will be greatly increased if your community college academic record is outstanding and you have a solid record of extracurricular activities, ideally in organizations geared to make a difference in the community and showing you possess leadership skills. Good luck. The trick is this, find a public university that is very…
Yes, on a scale of 1-4, it's considered very good. It means the student averages A's to A-'s. When considered for college admission, however, a good GPA is just the beginning. Community service, sports, extracurricular activities and membership in organizations reflects very well on a student, indicating commitment, service and good work ethic.

This answer will vary depending on the person. 16 is usually a good starting time because you will already know how to handle homework, sports, and extracurricular activities. By that time you also have a good friend base. Of course I would focus on school because you can always date later, but if you mess up your grades it can have serious consequences.

Volunteering is always a plus on your resume also. Extra curricular activities are anything that you do outside of work and school. Sports, music, and performing arts are great examples of extra curricular activities. When writing about it, just say what you like to do. ex."I am a very good baseball player for the local community center. I like to spend my weekends playing baseball with my kid." Remember to keep it simple and don't…
Yes, all of these schools will accept a student with a GPA of 3.5 if the student has the test scores, extracurricular activities, and other items that fit into the schools standards. It should be noted that a GPA of 3.5 will need to be accompanied by high test scores and very good extracurricular activities. ---- I think this is a little conservative. You can go just about anywhere you want with a 3.5 as…
