@notanikdey How about you start with capitalizing your “I”'s in your main title sentences :wink:
Honestly, if all this is infor above is 100% honest, you’re in a good position right now for being in 10th grade.

@notscaryseth I’m sorry about the small “I”'s . Honestly, I knew about them and decided to do nothing because I’m lazy LOL

@notanikdey That’s fine :wink:

@athleticAndrew Hey! Thats my line!

@zachattack2003 My bad! I couldn’t help it! So sorry! :wink:

Woah! 10th grader and stellar ECs and Academics. I am an International student from India as well. I do have have some recommendation regarding your work experience. Firstly I didn’t understand about failed startup and you don’t have to mention if it isn’t successful.

So ill tell you one thing, Me and my friend both applied to same prestigious universities in the US. My friend had slightly better GPA than me. I secured 90% under CBSE and he scored 94%. I always gave more importance to two subjects and then ECs. He was all over the place and went and joined every club so he can add it to his EC. Fun fact, I got into 11 of the 12 universities I had applied and my choice was NYU Shanghai. and my friend only got into 7.

You can probably find your passion and love doing ECs that means a lot to you. Many of these top university got a required regarding your admired work experience or doing a community service. It should Quality > Quantity in ECs. Last advice would be regarding maintaining that amazing relationship with your counselor and teachers. Go talk to them all the time. I always used to go talk to them and we never spoke subjects outside the class rather things that I like, what I am going to do and what can be done better at this school… Your counselors recommendation should show that you are unique and stands out from other applicants. These are recommendations for universities such as Yale, Harvard, UPenn and all. basically the IVYs and top ranking Universities.

That’s all Champ!

Thanks for all the advice.
I had a few personalized questions:-
1.My school doesn’t have a guidance counselor, so who do I build a rapport with?
2.Classes are online and they don’t let us talk to them
