Hey Guys,

I will be finishing up undergrad this spring with hopes of attending one of the top 15 B-schools in US. My GPA is a bit lacking, with my major GPA being only 3.4.

My question is, I know HBS and Kellogg and a lot of school put a lot of weight on extracurricular activities and affiliations. I'm out of control of my GPA at this point. I'm in control of my GRE scores as I will be studying for the test after my graduation.

I'm in control of what I do after college. My question is, what should I get involved in? What should I try to do, to benefit me when I will apply to B-Schools besides working?

v0va,

Do you whatever you enjoy doing or are passionate about, just be sure you do it in a way that enables you to demonstrate leadership and impact. The more leadership (bigger teams) and impact (whatever metric is relevant to your passion), the better. One piece of advice: think outside the box. Don't sign up for Habitat for Humanity because your friend did and he's now at Wharton. Be creative, go against the grain -- it will help you stand out.

Good luck,
