One of the most important parts of the Common App is the section in which students list their activities. Involvement outside the classroom is a major selection component for many universities, and this is the primary opportunity to share the depth and breadth of that involvement. We’ll offer tips for these 10 entries to maximize their impact. In other segments, we’ll go over what you need to know about FERPA and one of our educators will share her experiences studying engineering in a liberal arts college.
