    I attend Grinnell and we are always looking for qualified international students. It seems as though your credentials are enough to get you into a good majority of your schools, though you may want to narrow your list down a little. Speaking for Grinnell, I think you should apply here and really consider coming. We have a large portion of international students and we are always looking for more. We also have a very large endowment that would facilitate possible financial aid options for qualified international students.
