Weight of the different aspects of college apps

<p>Are some colleges known to consider some aspects of the college application more than others? If so, which colleges favor a specific portion over another.</p>

<p>For example I have an average GPA of a 3.7W and a 2120SAT; However, I'm applying to undergraduate business school and so far in high school I've started and run business operations exceeding $200,000 in sales and have a dire passion for entrepreneurship.</p>

<p>Does a school like Stanford favor a profile like this because they are so well known for sprouting entrepreneurs?</p>

<p>Any feedback much appreciated.</p>

<p>Each school’s Common Data Set, section C7, indicates the relative importance of various academic and non-academic factors.</p>

<p>Would starting and running my own business follow under work experience or extra curriculars?</p>

<p>I’d say only mindless drudgery counts as HS work experience.
(Unless you invented a new form of mindless drudgery for others. Then it’s an extracurricular.)</p>
