I’m an international student applying for bachelors in few universities in USA. For now i have plans to apply to NYU, Bowdoin, UMD, Carnegie Mellon. If i apply to these schools without request for financial aid, will i able to apply for aid later on during my time at the campus?
You can but for the first year you def won't get any finaid as I understand. It will also be hard to justify applying for finaid later but possible. Also bear in mind that these schools provide very little finaid for international students anyway. Your best bet is to see if you can qualify for some kind of scholarship after the first year.
