First of all, without knowing your test scores, it’s hard to say what your overall chances are at any particular school. Colleges care much more about the depth of your commitment to outside activities rather than the breadth. They would rather you be involved in just a few activities and devote meaningful time, rather than have more activities but not devote much time to any of them. My advice would be to get involved with something you love and feel passionate about.

It will help you in the future to get some additional points if you take part in extra curricular activities during your education.For eg : if you are a person interested in sports you can select a specific one or more and get training in them and participate in sports meets that will bring you additional certificates and recognition in that field.Likewise you can select a sport of your choice as extra curricular activity.

In college, extracurricular activities are important in many ways. First of all, it gives you a more rounded experience overall. You will enjoy your college experience a lot more if you are doing more than just classes. Join a club! On most campuses, clubs meet a few times a month – they know that you’ve got classes and studying to do, so they usually don’t meet too frequently or for too long. Also, I would reccomend joining a club/organization relevant to your major. For example, if you are an education major, join a club for education majors. They usually do service work and can help you with things you may struggle with. Having done extracurricular work in your field also looks great on a resume!

Good luck in your endeavors!
