We learned that one fundamental disadvantage of Chinese students applying to American colleges is the systematic lack of social/extra-curricular experiences that proved to be crucial when building critical thinking and personal character. Chinese students are intelligent but sheltered. On the other extreme, many international schools built in China only cared to serve the elite. These institutions provide ample resources only to selected students.
