Other info: Studied abroad in London for a semesters and took non-engineering cultural enrichment courses I have won multiple scholarships for my good academics/involvement on campus
Advantages: I think I have a good GPA, STEM major, I have a lot of leadership from student clubs and I am very involved on campus. Good internships.
Disadvantages: From a very average undergrad university I feel like I'm missing that "spectacular" thing from my application - I don't have any amazing stories about how I dedicated my life for one cause / started my company / or did anything exceptionally amazing.
I would like an HONEST and REALISTIC evaluation please.
Also, I have no idea what to write my "open-ended" essay on for HBS. any pointers on how to start?
ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATE!!!! Thank you!!!!
