So does Harvard's 10% foreign student body consist only of Canadians? We more conventional foreigners feel left out.
Hm, it seems to be so. Canadians do have an advantage, in that many Canadian universities have GPAs or grades that can be pretty easily converted to a GPA, and we don't really have to worry about the English language requirement unless you lived your whole life in the backwoods of Quebec/New Brunswick.
Also my guess is that Harvard isn't considering me part of their foreign student body since I'm a dual citizen and I've lived in Michigan for almost ten years.
I went to a very American UG with very convertible grades. But those grades are also not 3.9+ haha.
I'd actually be curious to see how many non-Canadians with American undergraduate are waiting for decisions from Harvard or what decisions they've received. Feel free to PM me, fellow internationals!
