Hi, I am an international student ( I am from west-Africa) and I have the firm intention of getting into Stanford. It is now over a year that I have been in the US, and I am currently attending a Community college. It is only now that I found out that Stanford accept only 1% of their transfer candidates, but I still want to apply.
My concern is that unlike most american I have very little volunteer hour ( around 6hours)
I have not been in a club, during my high-school years ( we do not have such things in our country) in sum, I do not have a furnished resume like most pretenders.
I only have my academic achievements: I currently have a 4.00 GPA; for our national exam, I was ranked first of our city ( the capital of our country).
I speak french, english (obviously), Arabic and understand a little of german. I know it is not enough but I am trying to get more involve, by doing community services, joining clubs.....
So do y'all think it is a loss quest in advance or I should try my luck?
Any advice is more than welcomed!!!
