Should I censor my social media to appease admissions officers and employers?

Oh god do I feel you, I was doing terribly first semester (C ). The only advice I can give you is to study really hard and don’t be afraid to ask questions, even if you have to use a third source like I did!

I feel like this would vary by school, so your best bet is to directly call and reach out to the schools you are interested to figure this out.

It does vary by school but there is a general process of how universities treat international transcripts. I had a friend coming to study from Europe and the process is very straightforward
3 days ago
You just submit your transcripts and they review it - many don't convert as they know different systems etc

We talked about this in the US colleges group. For international students applying to US schools it appears the more the better but applying to more than 5-6 just takes too much time

It seems that this is for the US students at the moment (perhaps part of this will go towards international) but the university does provide financial aid for international students although it is known to be less generous than others. We have published a list of US colleges that provide good packages for international students
