#092 – On this episode we conclude our two-part conversation about extracurricular activities by focusing on the different activities that can be included in the college application.

Although we discuss participation in clubs, volunteering, and other similar activities, we focus our conversation on ways applicants could present any jobs they may have had while in high school.

The experiences gathered in these jobs could be presented in the application in ways that greatly benefit applicants.

We go over several examples of how to do it. Jankel and I also talk about the main reason why students should become involved in extracurricular activities, and what these tell college admission officers about students who actively participate in those activities.

We also present the meaning of “Passion” and “Leadership” as it regards extracurricular activities.

At the beginning and towards the end of the episode we also cover the admission requirements for the University of Southern California, with a special emphasis on the non-academic requirements.
