I encourage you to join clubs, participate in community service and begin to think about the personal insight questions on college applications.  Listed below is a link to the UC personal insight questions.  An example of how to prepare now is to review the questions...Describe an example of your leadership experience in which you have positively influenced others, helped resolve disputes or contributed to group efforts over time...If you have not had an opportunity to serve as a leader in some sort of capacity, think about what you can do this year to gain some experience.   It can be with a family experience, community service, school, a job, or church activity.  Visit the link below and review the other questions!
