Current Address and Living Overseas

Postby natural » Mon Nov 08, 2010 2:08 am

I'm currently living and working overseas, and have been doing so for several years now. My resume and personal statement mention this obviously, but I have been listing my home in the U.S. as my current address on my applications (though none have been submitted yet) because I do not trust the mail system here and would prefer to have application decisions, etc., sent to that address. Does anyone know if this discrepancy will bother adcomms at all or if they somewhat expect it for applicants overseas?

A lot of people use stateside addresses when they live abroad. It won't be a problem

I put my overseas address and phone on my resume but the address I have on file is stateside.

I listed my overseas address on my application but I can't seem to fit my overseas phone number on the application!!!!
What do I do!? Do I go ahead and list my parents number because it is more convenient? or should I email them and inform them of my overseas phone number?

Yea, this is exactly what I did (in the same boat).

Then, I just e-mailed the schools and told them as much giving my new address. A few schools were unable to put it in there system, so I gave them my mobile which they said they'd call if i got in.

Edit: Okay, it seas were were switched, I read wrong, but same thing applies - just e-mail them your update and give them your parent's number.
