Is it easier to get an acceptance rate if i’m in a private international school?
I attend one of the SEK international schools, but i do not live in the USA. Is it easier to get admitted bra cause of this?

US students are evaluated relative to their high school, meaning that it won't be held against them if their school doesn't offer AP courses, for example. For international students, I think it's a little bit different. While it might not be "easier" to get admitted, I'm sure it won't hurt if your private international school is a very good school and offers a lot of advance coursework or resources. That might set you apart from other international applicants and will probably make it easier for admissions officers to evaluate your candidacy. So it definitely won't hurt you!! But I'm not sure how much extra "boost" it will give you either.
