Is it a desperate demand? And if you could suggest examples of activities that ARE NOT sport-related I would be grateful =].
Colleges like to see other things besides school-related stuff that you are involved in. Sports are pretty important but not as important. If you don't want to play a sport, try joining a lot of clubs and try to get involved in a lot of your school's activities. Try to become a class officer too such as class president etc. :)
Colleges also like to see things you do outside of school.
Also, I've heard that if you're in the music department, you have a higher chance of getting into a university than a person who isn't in the music department (not exactly sure though.) Just keep your grades up and get involved! Hope I helped. I'm thinking about my college resume too :)
College admissions are competitive. The most important thing to colleges is the odds of success (graduation) of candidates; SAT, ACT, and high school grades are the best predictor of academic success in college. If two candidates have the same classes and about the same grades sometimes it is non-academic criteria that decides who gets in. Being "well rounded" is seen as an advantage which is where extra-curricular activities, volunteer work, etc. come in. At a lot of colleges if one of your parents are an alumnus than you are a shoe in even with marginal grades.
