What should I do to make me stand out?

Hey Guys!
I just completed my first year of my LLB program. For semester one I have a 3.85 GPA and for semester two I've fallen down to a 3.43 GPA. I must confess that I was idling and I have paid the price. However no as I am refocusing myself my dream of attending Harvard for my LLM is becoming quite clear. I've only joined one club for the year and held no position on the board.
May I please have some advice as it regards GPA requirements, EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES and VOLUNTARY ACTIVITIES. I really want to know so I can start these activities. Please indicate type of activities or amount. Advice on how you structured your time would be help too!

THANK YOU!!!!!

I'm curious. Is it that everyone who has read the post (138) to date ignoring my post because they think I do not stand a chance because my GPA isn't 4.0 or above? I can take it if thats what you think or if that is what's actually true. I know this question reveals my insecurities but please answer me. Thank you!

No chance for Harvard. Activities etc are not counted for much, you will be wasting your time. I believe you might have a better shot for a decent quality LLM in Unis in the UK...They might be more exited to get a US student (if you are a US student). Try UCL, KCL, Edinburgh, Durham. No chance for Oxbridge or LSE. Then, try to graduate with good grades and then maybe you will have a chance for an LLM in the US schools...
If you are not a US student, try mid-range US schools with a particular focus that is of interest to you

I thought you were graduating. If you 4 years away, you still have time. Ignore social/extra carricular = two things you need, grades and recommendation from famous/senior professor. Also summer internship in a good firm. That's it
