I mean sure. But objectively see if you actually stood out or not. It’s like all those people who were valedictorian of their high school but only got a 1300 on their SAT. Sure they were the smartest in their school but objectively they weren’t that unique.

Feel like target schools still a thing generally but that doesn’t mean that standing out isn’t impressive. Just maybe not as impressive as doing the same thing at an ivy or something
