US Student Looking at International Schools
2 years ago
Hi Quentin - what are you planning to study?
Generally we don't like to speculate on chances but hope to provide useful advice for our members. Here a few points based on our experience and your profile
UK: Edinburgh is probably a good match for you, great place (apart from the weather) and has a number of international students. LSE and UCL have become very competitive in recent years especially for international students but location is great (same for King's). A few other schools which could be alternatives for St. Andrews and well regarded in the UK and abroad are: Warwick, Bristol and Exeter - in fact, we suggest to look into these more closely.
France: Given your fluency in French you should definitely apply and have a reasonable chance at these two. There are a number of other schools we could recommend depending on your major.
Canada: McGill appears to be very focused on academics and given grade deflation it is probably the toughest to get into from your list. We had a post here on McGill - have a look

on studying abroad and your plan to find a school outside of the US makes a lot of sense!
Give us a shout if you have more questions!
