    UCs become considerably easier if you don't need financial aid.
    The UCs hardly offer any Fin aid to Internationals because that is their main income.
    So, if you haven't applied for it, you're chances go up considerably!
    Cheers.

    UCs do not have any need-based aid for international students AT ALL.

    UCs along with almost all Public Universities in the US, do not offer ANY aid to international students.
    However, public universities have relatively lower tuition rates.

    @upapilot fee is less for public universities but not UCs ...it's 38000$ as compared to Rutgers or purdue with around 25000$ so I think less indians apply too

    I am in a CBSE board school. My school marks are very low coz the class 11 and 12 in my school is extremely tough. If I have performed well in science and maths olympiads, and have AP's in physics and calculus with scores of 5, can it compensate for my school marks ?

    @Dkdgr8 What was your score in Grade 9 and 10? How low is very low? Which stream are you - Science / Commerce / Arts? Some Adcoms (very few) understand this unique Indian phenomena. Have you taken the SAT? If you are otherwise a good student with an overall good academic record (9/10 grades/ olympiads/ AP) those will reflect your true ability to the Adcoms.

    Can anyone give me data regarding the IB scores out of 42 that serve as a pseudo-requirement to get into the IVY League or Stanford. I have a current 38 score and a predicted of 39.Would my 2300+ SAT be able to balance out a slightly low grade? My counsellor seems to think that my scores are fine. I have applied to Stanford REA

    @fbhsfhthj‌ You can take the tests on your own if you want to. If you feel that you need prep, attend classes.

    Thanks and I don't think I'm going to require extra prep.
