Good safeties for B student with low income?

<p>Just like what it's said in the title, can you recommend me a list of schools that matches the points below?</p>

<p>-In Northeastern US
-Really good safeties for B+ student, SAT 2000, Answering SAT 2 soon.
-Cheap/ Generous financial aid for international student. </p>

<p>Right now I have my eyes on</p>


<p>I know most of them are A+ schools. That's why I need more safeties. I want at least 5. Also, from the list which one do you think are my safeties? Thank you in advance! I really need as much as as possible! :(</p>

<p>People might help you better if you stated a price limit.</p>

<p>But financial aid and scholarships tend to be a lot less available for international students.</p>

<p>Well the net amount can be around 15,000. That is after the scholarships and financial aids.</p>

<p>South Dakota State University has a list price of $15,846 for non-resident (presumably including international) students.</p>

<p>[Cost</a> Estimate](<a href=“]Cost”></p>


<p>If you’re low income, how can you pay $15k per year?</p>

<p>What is your GPA?</p>

<p>What is your math + CR SAT score?</p>

<p>Well 10K really. My sister will help out if tuition costs more. I got 1290 for CR+ Math. I always ranked among the top 30% of my class. My school GPA system is kind of weird. I still have to talk with my teachers about that.</p>

<p>There is no such thing as a “safety” for someone in your situation. Financial aid for international students is far more limited than what is available for U.S. citizens.</p>

<p>Ahh… :frowning: Ok let’s say we forget about the price. Can you suggest good schools that are reachable for B students?</p>

<p>I think you need to start your list planning over from the beginning. Top 30% will likely mean you don’t have any shot at the first seven schools on your list, unless you are attending a highly selective prep school that is renowned in your country. Why do you need to be in the Northeast? Most of the less expensive schools where you may have a shot are in other regions.</p>

<p>If it is very important to you to attend college in the U.S., I agree with polarscribe that your best bet is a national search for schools with lower sticker prices.</p>

<p>Well that’s not good. :frowning: How about colleges around US? Not just in Northeast. Do you know any good schools that are affordable?</p>

<p>Maybe Gettysburg college</p>

<p>Oh thank you! I’ll search it up. Any more suggestions? I would really appreciate any help I can get. :]</p>

<p>It will be almost impossible for you to find a college or university in the US where the full cost of attendance (COA) for an international student is USD 15,000 or less. Start by using the college-matching search engines to identify public institutions where the out-of-state tuition and fees are no more than USD 5,000 per year. That would leave you USD 10,000 for your housing, meals, books, transportation, and personal expenses. And yes, that is about what you should plan on paying for those items - more if you will be travelling home each year to a country on the far side of the planet.</p>

<p>You also can use the college-matching search engines to identify institutions that offer financial aid to international students. Then go through that list one-by-one and see if there is any chance that you might be able to be admitted by that place, and whether or not you could possibly qualify for the international aid that is offered. For pointers on that process, PM b@r!um who posts in the International Students Forum. She may have ideas for you.</p>

<p>Please don’t forget to identify an affordable institution in your home country, or in another country. Australia and Canada may be worth investigating. Both are more generous with work permission for international students, and there is the chance that you could make enough money to cover your living expenses.</p>

<p>Oh thank you very much! I just checked out the international forum. I got answers to a lot of my questions. I will do some rigorious research for colleges that fit me. Please do let me know if you have any advice for me. I would be very grateful. :D</p>

<p>I dunno Iona College? You never stated your GPA, but if you say B+ I assume 3.1</p>
