International student ivy league??

<p>Hey!! I am a Mexican international student in America and I wanted to know if there were also any students like me on cc, or that you know of... Born in a Latin Country but came here at a very young age. Any opinions or thoughts are appreciated. </p>

<p>Here are my stats:

I've also taken 5 classes at the local state school. Mostly advanced science classes... 3 A's and 2 B's. </p>

<p>Summers: Attended a top math and science summer programs summer of 2010 and of 2011.</p>

<p>My parents annual income is around $35,000 kinda very low-income...</p>

<p>What are my chances for ivy league schools?? Does anyone know if international students in America get different treatment in top college admit process?? I know my stats are on the low side for most ivy league and top schools, but my scores are in the 99+ percentiles for Mexicans/Mexican Americans... So I am essentially a Mexican American (raised here), but I wasn't born here. How will colleges interpret my app??</p>

<p>I think you would have a great chance at any school you apply to, including ivy league schools. You're grades are great, as are your ECs and test scores. Being a Mexican-American from a low-income household will help too. I think you could get into any college, but the process is so random that you never know.</p>

<p>What is your immigration status? If you have a green card, you will be considered a domestic applicant, rather than an international, and you will be eligible for federally determied (FAFSA) financial aid.</p>

<p>You have good grades and test scores. Go to the Financial Aid Forum and read up on Questbridge, and check out the threads on Guaranteed Merit-based scholarships.</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>Your story is interesting regardless of your immigration status. I'd advise you to go for it. Dependent on your status, you might also consider Questbridge.</p>

<p>Thank you guys! I hope I get in, I'd be happy with any of the ivy league schools accepting me—as I am sure anyone would too...</p>
