Hey guys I just wanted to know if not being active in my freshman year of high school would ruin my chances? I was not in any clubs other than Boy Scouts and I did not play a sport and I didn't get great grades. I am finishing my sophomore year now and I completely regret my freshman year. I am now in multiple clubs and I'm going to be the captain of our varsity soccer team now and my grades have increased 10 fold. I reached the rank of eagle and Im in multiple leadership positions now.
