I am an international student (from Germany) and I applied to the Macaulay Honors College at Baruch.
So I was wondering what you think my chances are because I really don't have a lot of more options - financial aid is very rare for internationals and I couldn't afford paying a lot of money for college. Besides that I really want to go to college in NYC since I've been there quite a few times and really really love it.</p>
<p>My SAT scores aren't really that great, I realize that but I wasn't able to put much time into studying, actually none at all.
Math II: 610
French w Listening: 600</p>
<p>In my past 4 years in school, I had mostly As and some Bs. </p>
<p>Besides that, I spent one year in the U.S. as an exchange student (11th grade).
There I joined the National Honor Society, played Saxophone in the band and received some awards for that (not very impressive ones though I think) and one semester I had a GPA of 4.0 and the second semester one of 3.85 (out of 4)</p>
I play piano for 11 years, I am editor in chief for the senior yearbook, I am tutoring 5th and 6th graders, I am member of the politics club, I play saxophone and I've played both saxophone and piano in the school's bigband. </p>
<p>So what are the chances for me to get in Macaulay?
And if I'm not accepted there, I'm automatically considered for Baruch honors, right? Do I get free tuition there as well?
Is it more of an advantage or a disadvantage to be from Germany, or generally international?
Do you have any other suggestions of colleges for me?</p>
<p>Thanks for your answers!</p>
