ECs international applicants
Answered

This question is haunting me since deciding to apply for US colleges/universities. Does ECs play the same role for international applicants admissions as domestic applicants? since students from many countries don't get as many opportunities compared to US students.

From what CV community has told me, they don't. Colleges don't expect you to have the same level of ECs as someone who studied in US.

That being said, do try to improve your ECs since international applicant pool is usually very competitive.
