What is an activity that colleges are mostly impressed by?

I heard that an academic elective is impressive, but also a sport. I can't do both. Should I do track, or lit mag? I have one year till I go to a highschool without any activities provided for my junior year, so i dont know what I should do to expand my resume. Sport or academic elective?

It depends. If your grades are excellent, I'd do the sport. If your grades are so-so, I'd do the academic. That way your application is more balanced. However, since you have only one year before transferring to your new high school, I'd do whichever you enjoy more. Colleges are really impressed by volunteering so you can do what you want now and then once you transfer, you can spend those remaining two years volunteering somewhere.

Community Service is a bigger deal than a sport so if you are to take up anything try community service.

Community service hours , sport, and join a club. If your good in all these with okay grades you will knock community college off your list
