What to do in High School

Just do what you'd like to do, be productive, don't worry about "What to do" or "What would look good"
In short, if you can get the admissions officers to ask themselves "How the heck did did a high school student do that?" you've made yourself an interesting applicant. It's not about getting perfect grades and scores all the time; if you accomplish something genuinely beneficial and out of the ordinary, you're golden.
