The college guidebooks in your library, high school counseling office or bookstore will give the average GPAs for accepted students.

If it’s difficult to get into extra-curriculars at your school, look for volunteer opportunities in the community. If you have a Red Cross office, they probably have a volunteer center, or you can check with the hospital, food pantry, etc. If your city has a website, there may be a link to volunteer opportunities in the community.

You might also look into doing some college courses for high school students, etc at any colleges in your area. Some of these have courses that are meant to be a hands-on introduction to careers or may be actual courses for credit. Anything like that, done well, would look good. You might do a search for “summer college programs for high school students” or some such. I think the Johns Hopkins website has info about such programs on their “CTY” link [Center for Talented Youth].

Good luck to you.
