    Yeah, I got 100% Non-Resident Freshman Scholarship. Basically 90% of total tuition fees. What about you?

    Hey guys, I have my deadline in 10 days and i really need help with my college list.
    I basically require sufficient amount of financial aid so I can come to the US for undergrad. (I'm not a US citizen)

    -My SAT score is a 1900 (CR-670, Math-640, Writing-590, Essay-9/12)
    -My school grades are all A's and B's.
    -My TOEFL came out to be 111/120
    -Since my choice of major is Journalism, almost all of my EC's are media related, Senior Editor-Editorial Board, International Press(MUN), Director of Theater society etc.

    Could you guys recommend a college that would accept me while giving a sufficient amount of financial aid. My family would be able to provide around 15-20k dollars.
    It wouldn't hurt if the college has a well ranked journalism school too.

    ^depends on the universities you apply. But TOEFL is necessary to get your visa.

    TOEFL is not a visa requirement, it is a language proficiency requirement...as long as a college accepts and offers you admission, you can apply for Visa...TOEFL or no TOEFL.

    Per US law, the officer conducting your interview for a visa is well within his rights to adjudicate that your English language skills are not adequate for you to undertake an educational degree course in the USA, and hence decline to give you a F1 visa on that ground. That discretion gets largely removed if you have a decent score on the TOEFL.

    Anything above 80 on iBT should normally be OK, unless you have very poor conversational skills and present poorly. Obviously a higher score is better.

    Hey guys, Applied to UPenn, UColumbia, Cornell, MIT and Georgia Tech.
    I got SAT II MathsIIC - 710 (SAD)
    PHY - 740
    Chem - 750

    Gave SAT I in Jan....Expecting above 2000.
    Now I wanted to know if not applying for Fin Aid in UPenn would boost my application or not..??? Coz if it does boost and gives me good chance then i would rather not apply....although it would be a constraint but i guess my parents would manage....

    Also, I have good EC's participated in many school and interschool activities and won a lot of them. Essay is also reasonably good and all recommendations are way above average i guess.... Please tell me to apply for fin aid or not...???

    Don't apply for aid except to Cornell, as it will hurt your chances. Cornell has a special scholarship for Indian students.

    @handson .... I know and will be applying for aid to MIT, UColumbia,but my main aim was UPenn....Wanted to know that if i dont apply for aid to UPenn...Will it substantially help me or not....???
    From what I hear...our chances almost double or triple if International students dont apply for Aid...????

    PS.... Wanted to know that what should i do if i have already checked the financial aid option...will i be able to revert it...???

    I'm an international student (though I may be found occasionally sipping coffee at Starbucks) applying to a couple of colleges this year. I decided to get my Common App essay read by someone who a) I haven't met and b) who hasn't seen me in my underwear.

    PM, if interested. Thanks.

This is my first interaction of any kind on College Confidential, and this seems to be a nice way to lose my CC virginity :P
