Employers Want Students with a Record of Community Service

What do the admissions officers of Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, and your dream school all have in common? Of course they are looking for Yes, all are looking for the most accomplished high school students to attend their schools, but all are also quoted as looking for more than just high test scores and dozens of extracurriculars on applications. Impactful community service and a vested interest in others is difficult to document and to appear genuine, and could be the factor that places a student on the accepted list versus the rejected list.

 

Yale

"Selecting future Yale students was a combination of looking for those who would make the most of the extraordinary resources assembled here...and those with an outstanding public motivation - in other words, applicants with a concern for something larger than themselves."

Kingman Brewster
Former President

Harvard

“Test scores and grades offer some indication of students' academic promise and achievement. But we also scrutinize applications for extracurricular distinction and personal qualities."

William R. Fitzsimmons
              Dean of Admissions
