Because every high school and every student is different, our advice is to pursue activities that are meaningful to you. Your extracurricular profile should be driven by your interests, passions, and personal responsibilities. Activities beyond the high school like jobs, family responsibilities, religious commitments, volunteering, etc., are also welcome to be included in the activities section of your application. Penn has a diverse student body that unites undergraduates with many talents and experiences, so activity profiles vary widely among admitted students. Penn does not weight or rank activities and does not prefer one type over another, so you should feel free to do the things that move you.
