Hey Guys,I am a freshmen in a top magnet school in the country. My grades are excellent and i have talent in writing. Unfortunately, i do not have many Ec's. Does anyone have any advice on what i can do for Ec's that would impress colleges? PLease respond! (No dumb remarks please)

Currently i do the following:

In general, it is, but it depends on your intended major in college too. Like if u wanted to do journalism, then i doubt it would matter that significantly, as opposed to if u wanted to major in engineering or medical.
