Will i fit into Villanova university

Hello!

I am currently on my first year of college. I am attending a community college, but I would like to transfer as soon as I can. Someone recommended that I check out villanova so I did. I did not visit the entire campus, but from what I saw, I liked it. After reading more about the campus life I am not sure if i will fit in.

Although I am Catholic, I happen to be a minority. I am a Palestinian girl who moved to the United States about 3 years ago. My family is not rich. I would say we’re a lower class family. I have liberal views and love having conversations about important issues such as climate change, sexual identities, war, and other topics as well. I heard that the student body at villanova is pretty conservative and most students are from white, middle/ upper class families. I’m worried that this will prevent me from fitting in.

Other than that, with english being my second language, I found the SAT to be extremely difficult, and I did not perform well on it. However, i took the TOEFL and I did get a good score on that. Will that lessen my chances of being accepted?

I am also wondering about financial aid. To make it simple, i cannot afford college. I genuinely have no idea how I will be able to get an education and attend somewhere good for me having to pay too much money. Does villanova give good financial aid?

I have asked a lot of questions but hopefully someone will be able to answer me. Should I continue my application for villanova? Do you think it would be a good school for me if I happen to get accepted?

Thank you

    Why are you stuck on Villanova if there is so much concern about fitting in and being able to afford it. Even with financial aid, there are a lot of hidden costs and unanticipated expenses. You likely would not get 100% financial aid transferring from a community college. I think the expense is the more significant issue even if you fit in.
