How can I even manage to stand out against applicants EC wise or even grade wise? I’m specifically talking about those other applicants to HYPS whose parents have went to college (or even legacies) and know the whole college admissions process really well, or those who are of really high income and/ or live in a big city in a big high school with many opportunities. I’m afraid I’m at a disadvantage compared to them since I’m from a rural high school where we don’t have enough funds or even opportunities to do EC wise, I’m of low income and my parents can’t even speak English etc. Can I even stand out compared to these type of applicants? Primarily EC wise?
