<p>menloparkmom, I don't need FA. As a an international student, it is a huge plus compared to the others.
I guess I didn't explain it well at first. This is why I can look only at the math curriculum I want to attend.</p>
<p>For exemple, neither Michigan nor HMC accept international transfer candidacy if they require financial aid.</p>
<p>In this case, my GPA proves that I can attend a rigorous course load in sciences to do something I like and that I can pay for it.
I also bring more diversity and am interested in a quickly growing field where majors are offered at UMich and HMC.</p>
