College Application Confusionn


<p>I'm a junior in high school in Florida, upcoming senior in the class of 2014.
I was born in India, raised in Canada and now I live in the USA.
I have Canadian citizenship and I live legally in Florida, US. Now that I live here, I am a US resident, not a permanent resident. </p>

<p>I want to go to college back in Canada and pursue higher studies in Canada till I could get a job back here. </p>

<p>When looking at goals schools, the thought "Am I considered a Canadian applicant or an International applicant?" comes to my head. </p>

<p>Could someone please answer this question? And... what scholarships am I eligible for? I'm only a resident and not a permanent resident of the US and I want to go back to Canada. </p>

<p>These are the colleges I'm looking at, if they help with answering:
McMaster University
University of British Columbia
University of Manitoba
University of Toronto
Simon Fraser University
BCIT (British Columbia Institute of Technology)
University of Waterloo
Kwantlen Polytechnic University</p>

<p>Thank you~ :D</p>

<p>P.S. If this helps anymore, I want to go toward Mechanical Engineering. Specifically mechatronics.</p>

<p>I’m assuming you’re a canadian citizen because that is what you stated. Schools in Canada are less expensive than US schools.<br>
I’m also assuming that you would be considered a canadian citizen who wants to work in the US and would need a company to sponsor you. I could be wrong but being a US resident does not automatically qualify you for work, as a Canadian citizen, in the US.</p>

<p>Well, at the moment I’m only concerned about the near future in regards to my college applications.
Even if the schools in Canada are cheap, I still would like some scholarship money to take off the burden off my parents’ back for at least a year. </p>

<p>I’d appreciate if people answered about the scholarships to go to school in Canada instead of the work. </p>

<p>Thanks for your response though~</p>

<p>Pick up the phone, and call the Education Officer at the closest Canadian consulate. Ask that person to help you find the answers to your questions about the universities in Canada. Then pop an email off to each of the places that interest you, and ask what steps you need to take to apply given that you are currently living outside of Canada, and whether or not there are scholarships available to you. It really truly is OK to just ask the universities themselves.</p>
