    Are you a US green card holder? If not, you will be considered a foreign student and that would make things more difficult for getting any kind of aid. Otherwise the GPA and test scores are inline for WashU.

    I’m not sure if there is any kind of residence or citizenship requirement for Questbridge. If not you might try applying via QB match.
