I am interested in applying to the HBS (2+2 program) and Stanford (deferred admission). I am a college senior and will be applying in the next mouth for Round 1.

22 years old. Asian American female, US citizen.

Drexel University
5-year B.S. and M.S. in Biomedical Engineering
GPA 3.82, GMAT 750 Q49 V42

I have done three co-ops (6 month internships) during my time at college:
1. chinese pharma company in shanghai - biologics assays
2. Merck - vaccine engineer
3. Johnson & Johnson - Lean, process improvement

leadership positions that I've had:
1. Vice president of my sorority at college
2. president of an overall Greek council that oversees many fraternities and sororities at college
3. founded (and is current president of) an engineering and science society at college
4. president of an intern society at Johnson and Johnson
5. membership director for local chapter of society of women engineers

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

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.

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.
