UC colleges

Can I get into a UC school without any extracurriculars? I am a student in India where there is not much focus on extracurriculars. What can I do?

Extracurricular activities are a very important part of the application to US schools. On the UC application, you are given 20 slots to fill in your extracurriculars, 10 more than the Common Application used by most schools. However, extracurriculars vary and do not need to be solely school based organizations. Try local volunteering opportunities (in person or online), take up a new hobby, check out some virtual clubs, or join local events for extracurricular opportunities.
