  Dear Student:
  Your high school academic record will be the most important factor in determining your readiness for college.
  However, the admissions officers also ask for supplemental information in the area of extracurricular activities,
  awards or honors, work experience, and community activities. It is better to have a few well-chosen activities in
  which you are a contributing member, rather than listing a great many to which you “just belong.” A complete
  and accurate report of these activities will enable your counselor to adequately support your application for
               Return this form to your Ms.Boswell along with any forms from the college.
