Hello, I am an international student applying to USA colleges this fall. My gpa is about 3.4 of 4. I'm in top5 of my class

I attended english summer school.
I tutor english.

Also, there are not many students from my country that apply to USA colleges and universities.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to pay for college. Only my mom supports me financially and my family income is low. Hence, I'll need financial aid.

Is there any chance for me to study at Smith? Any other school suggestions?

    "suggestions" ? Does your country of origin have financial support programs to assist ($$) students studying abroad? I'd look to financial aid programs close to home first.
