I am an international student who is considering applying for early decision/action (yes, I know the difference) and is looking for Swarthmore-related advice.
As background information, this is my second time trying to get in college in US. I was accepted at Cornell last year, but could not enrol due to lack of financial aid. I was also waitlisted at Amherst and the purpose for writing about the acceptance and waitlist is so the reader can get a general idea of my qualifications.
Brown is a school I did not apply to last year and so, I think I have a "clean-slate". What I want to get out of this post is advice on what strategy to take for applying early.
a) apply to Brown because I haven't been rejected from it.
b) apply to Yale (rejected last year) SCEA AND Swarthmore (rejected last year) ED 2, so I can be applying to more places. (and because I love the two)
If this message seems scarce in detail, please tell my how so I can add apropos information which will help you, help me!
