Admission only: REA Stanford Vs Columbia ED

<p>For a Canadian residing in the Middle East and capable of full pay for the four years, where do I have a good chance of admission:</p>

<ul>
<li>REA Stanford (need aware for Canadians) or</li>
<li>ED Columbia (need-blind for Canadians)</li>
</ul>

<p>Let us for now assume that I have the required admission credentials -Rigor, Rank, GPA, SAT, SAT2's, EC's and a 'passionate' essay. Also, I do not need FA.</p>

<p>@PrincetonDreams: Can you PM your contact info.. :)</p>

<p>You can PM me now. :)</p>

<p>Thanks PD. I will PM soon.</p>

<p>Is Stanford 'need blind'??? </p>

<p>This is written in their Admission page.
"Students are admitted on a need-blind basis, and the university ensures that no admitted student is unable to attend."
Is this for international applicants too?</p>

<p>^ Even though I did not apply to Stanford, I can assure you that they are not need-blind towards international applicants, Canadians included.</p>

<p>Thanks mathematicism :)</p>

<p>@Princeton Dreams: Thanks for your PM advice on choice of major. :)
I'll PM you when my essay is ready. Btw, your PM box is full</p>

<p>If you don't need financial aid just apply to which ever school appeals to you more.</p>

<p>i think you have a better chance at columbia.
But someone please answer this. Where, stanford or columbia, will an international student be offered more financial aid if accepted?
anyone please offer any comments</p>
