Firstly , I think I should explain my situation. I'm an indian student who
just graduated from a reputed high school in Dubai, U.A.E. I'd spent most of my time living as an expatriate with my family . My school followed the CBSE curriculum (indian curriculum) and I'd performed well enough in my last year (Overall at 86 percent which in gpa terms is around 3.44). But recently my family received an immigrant visa after 13 years of waiting , just as my high school ended in april. We're scheduled to move to California state in mid july. Just like other immigrants i was quite excited about the prospects of such a journey!
y dream is getting into UC Berkeley but due to the fact I became an immigrant only in april 2015 , I'd long passed the deadline for fall 2015 admissions. Hence, I'll have to join a community college in the mean time.
But I still wish to join berkeley as a freshman and soak in the experience completely!
So I'm planning to apply again next year. The bigger question here is how would berkeley view me as an applicant ( who's done most of high school outside the united states and is now an immigrant!?)
I'd like to hear from all of you.
