    Hey there. I am currently in Year 10 but I already know that I wan't to study in the US for university/college. Since i'm not very wealthy or loaded, I will require financial aid. Therefore, I am thinking of only applying to: Harvard,Yale,Princeton,M.I.T and Amherst because they are the only ones who give international financial aid (Dartmouth doesn't anymore). However, I've realized that you need amazing extracurricular activities to even have a minute chance of getting in. However, I don't do any extracurricular activities at all except for the DofE bronze (I'll probably get to gold). However, I know this won't be enough. Do you guys have any suggestions on what ECs to do to have the best chance of getting in. I am not very good at music or sports. Thanks.
