Coming to the end of 2nd year and no ECs?

Recommended Posts

It's never really too late to start, as much as it's never too early. It's important to have long term ECs as much as it is to have meaningful (to you) ECs that you enjoy doing. Starting late does mean that it can take more work to get activities set up/organized and change up your schedule to fit them in but honestly, the average number of cycles it takes an applicant to get in is 3. Meaning on average, people get in a year or two after they finish their undergrad (not straight out of third-fourth year). Just keep that in mind, and not have too hard expectations on yourself (or blame it on starting ECs "too late")
