I got several questions here, some to do with the Visa Interview and just regular college questions.
So to start, the Visa -
I have my interview coming up, my family and I are freaking out that I won't get approved because, well, there's a HUGE chance I won't be. We have literally no money, due to being broke already, and having to pay recent surgeries making things even harder, and worst of all, the USD vs Brazilian Real currency is at 2.09 now. However, my dad got a job that technically could pay for my college if almost half the money went towards my education. Would it be okay for my dad to show some kind of Boss Letter since we ourselves don't have any money yet?
Also, how can I talk to someone in English for my interview? My portuguese is awful, but my english is perfect.
And what are some normal questions they ask? I feel that i'd have a hard time convincing them that I don't plan on staying after my 4 years, but I figured I could just say i'm only a kid, i can't really live in another country alone after 4 years.
Some other College Questions -
So i plan on going to a college for a 1.5 or 2 year maximum and wanted to transfer to another school. My grades weren't too bad in high school, I think i could've gotten into a school like UNH or URI for sure, but the school i plan on attending is just very cheap compared to average schools. SO i wanted to do great and transfer, hopefully to a school like UDelaware. But Udel doesn't offer international aid or anything. If i did really well in my college years and transfer to Udel, would i be able to get some kind of Merit-Scholarship vs Need-based? because there's really no point in my even trying to transfer to any school if they don't offer any merit-based or need-based for an international student like me.
I also have emailed over 15 organizations that say they help brazilian internationals and even have several success stories and all that, but none can ever help me. So depending on organizations seems out of the question.
And lastly, I wanted to be a Vet, but if 1 year of college is already hard enough to pay for, 8 would be hell. Are Grad schools the same as undergrad, where they normally don't help at all with paying for internationals?
