Getting into college takes more than good grades. Many colleges are interested in your involvement in and outside of school, along with what you like to do in your spare time. These experiences are not only important to colleges, but to your personal development. This section is designed to get you thinking about the important things outside your report card—the things that not only make you a better candidate for college, but also help you to become a unique individual.
Your interests outside of school may also be a clue as to where you ultimately decide to go with your career. Use IllinoisMentor's My Interest Finder to help identify your interests and how they could lead to your career.
