<p>I'm an international, seeking aid.</p>

<p>I got wait-listed at all my colleges this year. In all probability I wont make it and will have to enroll in a college in my country.</p>

<p>I am planning on re-applying to the USA. </p>

<p>So here's my question: Can I start off as a freshman? [Given that I am willing to lose the few months of college-work that I will be engaging in back here]</p>

<p>Or must I be an international transfer?</p>

<p>I'm not sure but I think that would depend on how many credits you manage to finish at your local university by the time you re-apply. If you finish less than what is transferable, you may apply as a freshman.</p>

<p>Again, I'm not a 100% sure about this so maybe you could give them a phone call and ask...</p>
