Study abroad: what do I put for institution?

Postby daisyrita » Wed Oct 03, 2012 10:14 pm

I did a study abroad program in Russia. My grades/transcript came from an American UG. In the Education section of applications, it requests "List ALL educational institutions attended." Do I put the Russian institution or the American one? I'm afraid it's misleading if I say I attended an institution in New York when it was actually in Russia, but it would also look strange if I have a transcript from an American UG but didn't "attend" it.

Argh!!

Cool, thanks!! And on the list of institutions in the actual application, should I put the Russian one or the American one?

Just the American one, since that's your actual undergrad institution, and the SA program was through them (I'm assuming, as opposed to you independently going to school in Russia for a few months for some reason).
