I know that competition amoung international students for MIT and Caltech is preety intensive but I find it highly disappointing that these two schools don't delve into the African continent. A large chunk of the international's are either Asian or European yet we too have so much to offer in physics and math. Its just we have very little resources and language barrier problems.
For example English is my fourth language yet i got a 700 Verbal. I'm from East Africa.
720 math SAT 1
700+ (writing in DEC).

You're right, there are plenty of intelligent Africans wasting away in their countries. My father (who is Nigerian) got admitted to MIT. My uncle went to Cambridge full ride.

maybe you should highlight the language and resources thing in your essay

700 and its your fourth language. That is impressive, imo. I'm rooting for you.
