How Does Harvard View This EC?

<p>How does Harvard college view being a competitive junior powerlifter as an extra curricular activity?</p>

<p>On a similar note, does being an English student, living in England, going to an American school have any influence on my chance of being accepted?</p>

<p>Internationals are generally at a disadvantage compared to domestic ones.</p>

<p>I'm not sure about the EC.</p>

<p>Why are internationals at a disadvantage?</p>

<p>I don't know the real answer, but I think it has something to do with the fact that universities in the United States have a primary goal of serving residents and citizens of the United States. Between two students of similar qualifications, the domestic will always be accepted. </p>

<p>That being said, I think that powerlifting is just as legitimate as any other extra curricular or sport, with the advantage of being a bit rarer than others. I don't quite understand the question, though.</p>

<p>How about an international student living and studying in the US?
Will my chance of acceptance be the same with international applicants?</p>

<p>it will be better but not as good as us students/permanent residents</p>
