Recommendation Computer Science Groups
Hello,

I was wondering, do my extracurriculars and my accomplishments seem enough for top schools? Should I keep continuing to do what I do or should I change something?
There is never "enough" - there is always someone with better extracurriculars etc but that doesn't mean you can't get into a top school. Unfortunately, top schools (especially CS programs) are very unpredictable so relying on getting into top 10 CS school makes no sense - all you can do is present the best version of yourself on the application including essays etc. One thing is important if you work on small private projects like building a website try to see how the work you are doing is helping the community around you - see if you can get involved in a couple of projects that have real impact on communities (yours or others)
From what I understand it is better to continue with the same extracurriculars during your HS to show commitment
