Any kind of politically liberal or charity type activity will be favorable.

If you are not the leader type increase the number of activities that you can meaningfully participate in. “Meaningfully” is key. If you’ve got 17 different clubs and activities your participation is probably shallow.

Working on something to do with illegal aliens? Something other than shipping them back where they came from? Definitely a winner.

You’ve got a generally good CV. The GPA is a bit on the low side, so make sure you rock the SAT so that they know you’re a strong contender academically. Anything to do with native american issues plays well at Dartmouth (lots of residual guilt there). The UofM program will help. When you interview know WHY you want to go to Dartmouth, and why you feel you will bring something that will benefit the community. Lots of candidates don’t really know why they would be a good “fit”; knowing this and articulating it well will help you to stand out in a thick stack of apps.

Do something you care about, and that if they ask you about, you will be able to talk/write about passionately. There’s nothing that looks worse than an application form where you can see that someone has got involved with team sports, good causes etc. solely to make themself look good.

You say you’re doing web design – maybe you could offer to set up a website for a group you are involved with for community service? Something that would make a difference to them, rather than just be a set number of hours for you? To be honest, if I saw a form that said “100 hours community service” I’d see you as a hoop-jumper doing it to make yourself look good. I’d much rather see a form that said you ran the website for the Little Wallop Carrot Appreciation Society. You need to stand out, not just have more of the same.
