Questions/need help on the Common Application

<p>Hello fellow college confidential member! </p>

<p>I have some questions regarding with common app</p>

<ol>
<li><p>For the need-based financial aid, can non u.s citizen apply for it? because when I (non u.s citizen) pressed 'yes' it says i need to put down social security number which i do not have. Then, if i can't what kind of other scholarship i can earn? </p></li>
<li><p>In common app it asks you that if i have some organization that had helped me to write the common app. Is it beneficial to write an organization, or is it unbeneficial?</p></li>
</ol>

<p>Thank you! </p>

<p>Good luck all of the seniors!</p>

<li><p>I actually don't know what an international needs for financial aid, but I found this after I quick search & I think it might help: <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/common-application/635622-social-security-number-need-based-aid-intls-what-do.html?highlight=international+financial%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/common-application/635622-social-security-number-need-based-aid-intls-what-do.html?highlight=international+financial&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/li>
<li><p>I doubt it matters. And if it does matter, it probably matters a tinsy bit at the most. They're probably looking for organizations like Questbridge with their college prep scholarship or something like that. Just answer honestly. </p></li>
</ol>

<p>Don't take my word for anything though, I'm just another senior :P</p>
