Do clubs matter for grad school?

Extracurricular activities are still important for grad school – they just don’t need to be emphasized in the same way they did when you applied to an undergraduate program.

What looks good for grad school?

There are five main factors that most institutions look for when selecting graduate students: academic records, personal statement, letters of recommendation, research experience (and/or clinical experience, if you’re applying to a clinical program), and match to the program/advisor.
