All of my extracurricular activities were cancelled because of COVID-19. How will this affect my chances of earning admission?

We’re sorry you’ve lost the chance to do the things you’d otherwise be doing — things that bring you joy and help you learn, grow, and make a difference in your school and community. We hope you’re finding ways to stay connected with your friends from those activities even though you can’t be together in person. We also hope you’re finding new ways to connect with and care for your loved ones, which we view as valuable extracurricular activities in their own right; when you apply, we hope you’ll tell us about them along with what you had hoped to participate in. When we read your application, we’ll remember that you couldn’t pursue your usual activities through no fault of your own.
