<p>Hi guys, I think that my case is a little different.
I am currently in highschool in Germany. I am 50% German and 50% American. (I have the US citizenship)</p>
<p>I'd love to attend university in the US, especially in Georgetown.
So I'm neither sure about how to apply nor about my grades and scores.</p>
<p>So let's just start with the first point. Assuming I live in Germany while being an US citizen, do I count as an international student? Can I eventually apply for US financial aid?</p>
<p>Regarding the second point. I attend highschool in Germany and I will graduate 2016.
I see loads of people here with their 4,3+ GPAs. But, as some might know, the German "Abitur" (matriculation standard, "A-level" however you'd like to call it) is way harder than US highschool. 4,0 in US is more like average and you are like "not that good" with a GPA of 3,3. But a GPA of 4,0 in Germany is extremely, really insanely hard to achieve. And even a 3,3 GPA, which equals a "B+" in Germany is still above average and pretty good. (notice : If you have an A in a specific subject in Germany you are able to skip a whole semester in US colleges sometimes)</p>
<p>So I'm not quite sure about that and whether my grades will be counted equally as American highschool grades. </p>
<p>Now to the other things : Everyone in the US is required to hand in a SAT for a college application. Eventually some SAT subject tests. International students are furthermore required to hand in a TOEFL.</p>
<p>I'm not too certain whether I have to do the SAT but I guess I am supposed to do so.</p>
<p>My english is way above average compared to other German highschool students, and I don't know if I should do the TOEFL then. (And I am officialy an American so I don't really know about that)</p>
<p>And the SAT subject tests : Is it beneficial if I just do the "German with Listening" one and get full points there? </p>
<p>As you guys might have witnessed, I'm still very unsure about all that stuff.</p>
<p>Anyways, I really appreciate any help and answers :)</p>
