    Hi I am currently in yr12 planning on applying to some top American unis like Stanford, but I don’t have any amazing extra curriculars. Will this greatly affect my chances? Will good grades be enough? Plus any other advice on making my application stronger would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    I'm in year 13. I was going to apply to those sort of unis this year but I actually decided against it because my extra curriculars were weak. It is hard for an international student to get a place unless everything is perfect. I'd say just stay in the UK for undergrad and move to the US for postgrad (if you want to)
