It is unquestionable that COVID has had an economic and social impact on all countries. However, some nations have had worse conditions associated with the pandemic - due to a lack of proper health systems or even an absence of decent governmental action.
These facts are a little worrying when we think about foreign students’ chances of going to US colleges this year, once American Consulates are closed in several countries - thereby making it extremely hard to get US visas.
So, with all of that said, does anyone know if the COVID situation in specific countries will impact the chances of admissions for applicants from these regions?
I’m asking because I’m from Brazil, and the pandemic seems to keep getting worse by the day - as a product of our government’s inefficiency. Because I applied mainly to extremely competitive colleges, I’m afraid that I’ll be rejected by most of them given that it will be extremely hard for me to get a student visa.
Thanks for the answers!
