High School Experience: Private high school in Washington, D.C. with a graduating class of about 130 students. There was a culture of going to college.

Extracurricular Activities: I volunteer at an animal shelter nearby, and I’m also part of the Scripps Economic Society. Last year I was hired as a Statistics tutor.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
Even though I didn’t actually get to help anyone as a Statistics tutor, my professor recommended me. I felt this was because of the confidence I had in Statistics after taking his class. I also really love animals, so even though volunteering doesn’t have anything to do with my major, I enjoy being around them.
