Clubs

More often than not, building up a repertoire of experience is something that will help you in almost every aspect of your professional and academic life—

and it’s never too early to start. Thus, don’t underestimate the importance of high school clubs and extracurriculars when it comes to success in high school, college, and beyond. —Kaplan
