    Wassup '17ers?
    Fellow applicant here from the Indian Thread. Hows everything coming along?
  • perazzimanperazziman Posts: 2,214Registered User Senior Member
    Hello rew. There are no '17ers here yet. Hopefully, as Fall approaches they will show up. My son will be applying to the class of '17.
  • Princeton2017Princeton2017 Posts: 555Registered User Member
    Is it reasonable or crazy to apply to 20 colleges?

    International admissions are so competitive and applying to most of the top schools if you're a competitive applicant is considered necessary here in Pakistan.


    Consider this:

    2 have no supplement or application fee.
    2 have no supplements.
    I will probably apply to 3 EA, one private and two public so there'll be less work to do.
  • Princeton2017Princeton2017 Posts: 555Registered User Member
    btw you should update the list.

    1 from Aitchison to Middlebury, Duke and Northwestern.
    1 from LGS 55-Main to Trinity, Hofstra and Denver.
    1 from LGS Defence to UPenn.
    1 from Aitchison
  • pkteenpkteen Posts: 386Registered User Member

What type of rural area, cold, warm, mountain, low flat coastal, desert, forest, lake, river, ocean, agricultural, ranch, farm? What do you want to study? What is your educational background? How much do you want to spend a year? What are your hobbies and interests etc?
