I'm an International Student who is planning to apply to some of the California State University campuses for the Fall 2013 Session.
I'm having some trouble using the CSUMentor Form (CSUMentor
) for International Students as I have never used an online university application form before.
I'll list down some of the problems I am having with the form, and if you can, please help me out :
1) Third-Party Information Release : http://i.imgur.com/ZYSIf.jpg
Is this where I'm supposed to put my parent's name or someone else's name?
2) Credential Objective : http://i.imgur.com/zov2e.png
I don't get what this section is about at all. Could someone elaborate please?
3) Academic performance :
I have given O-Level and As-Level exams. How do I calculate my GPA from my grades?
Do I have to take into account the exams conducted by my high school as well?
These are all the problems I have with the Application for now.
Also, after I have filled in the Application, when is a good time to submit it? Do I wait till my SAT I scores have come out or can I submit it before? I also plan to give SAT II this November, so should I wait till my SAT II score come out and then submit it? I'm very confused as most campuses have Nov 30th as the deadline.
Also when do I have to mail my transcripts/bank statements/etc. to them? And what about my essay/personal statement?
PS. I'm planning to apply to San Diego State, Cal Poly and CSU Fresno.
