Hi!:) I'm an international applicant for Fall 2014. I already have 18 colleges I'm planning to apply to on my list. However, I'm looking for some more (especially match/low reach) that offer full need-based financial aid for internationals. I was wondering if anyone could provide me with some suggestions?:)
These are the universities I already have on My Colleges list:
-University of Chicago
-University of Pennsylvania
I'm mostly interested in universities on the East Coast but it's not a necessity.
SAT I: 2040 (730 CR, 640 M, 670 W)
SAT II: not taken yet but I hope for 700+ in Biology and Chemistry
GPA unweighted: 3.68 though I'm gonna provide universities with my country's GPA and a description of our education system
Activities: athletics (volleyball) both in professional club and in school team (captain in 9th and 12th grade); foreign language courses; language training camps; foreign exchanges with 3 different countries; community service (for disabled people, hospice; English language volunteer tutor)
Awards: Finalist in National Geographical Contest and History&Journalism Contest. 3rd place in National Volleyball Tournament. Distinction in State/Regional History&Journalism contest and finalist in State/Regional English language contest for secondary schools.
Class Rank: probably top 5% of the class
I'm from Europe and I'm white if it changes anything.
