I just worked to get good grades and a high ACT score. I didn't participate to a large degree in my high school so grades were all I had. I recommend that high schoolers just work hard on their grades and try to fit a couple extra things in. Also, apply early decision. Most of Furman's accepted applications come through early decision.
