    Does the admissions board prefer someone that has participated in a bunch of different extra curriculars or does it look better if you've done 1 or 2 things all four years of high school? for example, would it be better to be on the schools swim team, water polo team orchestra for 2 years, play piano, be in a school play and do well, or better to only do swim and water polo and letter in both and be team captains?

    It's impossible to speak to how the board will view it, but someone in high school once told me to cast my net deeper and not wider, meaning get highly involved in fewer things as opposed to getting involved on the surface in many. I will say that having some extracurriculars outside of athletics is probably good though.
