Is it a hook to be an entrepreneur from Australia?
It seems like all the people I have talked to from Australia who were accepted into the Harvard and Stanford ect. were entrepreneurs and developers.
Whilst I'm not a developer, I am an entrepreneur and have had a few small ventures including local community projects to encourage teen entrepreneurship.
Will coming from Australia be a hook or a weakness since it is more competitive? And will being an entrepreneur be a hook since Stanford is a very entrepreneurial school - hence why I would love to attend there. Attending a school with like-minded individuals is a dream. Something that cannot be achieved in Australia where everyone attends the same school.
My SAT is pretty good, grades decent, ATAR is predicted to be between a 96-98 which would place me in the top 2%-4%.
Extra-curriculars are purely entrepreneurship haha, never was into sport although I attended tennis lessons for one year in Grade 9 (something I probably wouldn't put down).
