I think this isn’t a question of the technical elements of it:
In that regard:
- Research how you can apply as an international student on the Harvard site
- Call Harvard if there are any issues in understanding
- Call a competitor university such as Boston or otherwise and take their advice if you’re worried
- Email a careers advisor explaining your situation
Do ALL of the things above and then collate all of the practical information you are given.
Now onto the next part:
HONESTLY - even if you were a ‘First World’ student I’d still say:
You need to achieve more.
Getting into Harvard is no joke. And given you can get onto Quora I’ll assume you have a broadband connection.
It has made the playing field even.
As to what you ‘should achieve’.
The possibilities are boundless. But you want to give yourself every opportunity to be successful and to get recognized for it.
- Medical internships
- Published papers
- Content writing in the form of blogs/online magazines
- Learning a new skill/technical proficiency
Alongside the high grades of course.
Do all of this. And you can readdress the playing field in your favor
