Extracurricular Activities as a Competitive Student


Pre-Professional Students should engage in extracurricular activities to build and increase skills that demonstrate time management, conflict resolution, initiative, team work, responsibility, dedication, accountability, empathy, resilience, compassion, and perseverance.  Professional Schools seek out candidates who are 'well-rounded', as defined by socially and professionally competent individuals.


Become active in a student organization, club, honor society, fraternity or sorority, sports team... or several!  Be sure to do more than just be on the membership roster - become a leader within the group!
