Icelandic Heritage and College Applications

jrubinjrubin 1 replies4 discussionsRegistered User Posts: 5 New Member
Hello,
I was wondering if my Icelandic heritage could be of any help to my application. My whole mother's side is from Iceland. I have a deep connection to Iceland and being Icelandic something I'm very proud of. I am also wanting to get an internship there this summer (I'm a junior now).

What do you think?

Thanks!

    There's no "Icelandic" box to tick on tbe application form-- just "white/caucasian"

    No but if you speak Icelandic you can understand the old Norse sagas which is way better.

    It's not necessarily a box to check, but I think if you can emphasize it, it certainly won't hurt. It's pretty unique, and it will make you stick out or be more memorable in a gigantic applicant pool.
