Hello int'l students of CC :ㅇ
I'm a South Korean looking to apply to US colleges this year!
I will be really thankful if you guys could point out some LACs that offers generous FA for internationals
(I want to know because for colleges that are not generous, applying for FA will dramatically drop my chances for acceptance..realistically)
Here are my stats that you can refer to
GPA: 3.9 / 4.0 UW (Class schedule is fixed in my school.. no honors APs or anything)
SAT I superscore: CR 740 / M 800 / W 780 (Essay:!2)
SAT II Math 2: 800
US History: 760
APs: Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Calculus BC, Statistics, US History, Psychology
ECs:.. they are the weakest part of my application.. I will not mention them specifically, but they are pretty much the average...
volunteering about 200 hours; school press (newspaper) ; varsity sport; class president; internships.. / some minor researching activities
Given my mostly academic-based ECs I think I could be applied as a typical studious Asian with good standardized scores.. but actually I'm very far from that stereotype and willing to show that through my essays..
Anyways! Any input would be appreciated~
(P.S. Do you guys know if I would be in a disadvantage if I apply as a first-year applicant even if I am currently a college student? I have a reasonable explanation for this though.. the admission officer of a college told me that I have to apply as a transfer; I have just finished the first semester of first year college at home)
