Applying to college can be so full of emotions and preparation, especially when you're applying as an international student! Our latest podcast episode is hosted by Tushar, a junior at Drexel University who applied to US colleges from India in 2017. Here are some resources he gathered that were helpful to him during the application process!
Take a look, and listen to Tushar's episode on any platform you listen to podcasts!
Tushar here! Here are some resources that were helpful for me during my applications:
Here are some websites for finding general information about colleges in the U.S., student life, self-discovery, and more.
General Sites 📚
- This site was great for all-around college advice by top students and other experts. They have a lot of information on colleges, the application process, test strategies, and more.
- Scoir has a lot of different tools for students, like searching for colleges based on your personal and academic interests, discovering your strengths with a career assessment, and more. You can sign up for a free account even if your school doesn't use Scoir!
These sites often have advice from people who are going through the process, so it can be really helpful to hear their perspectives! Just remember that the posts are from the writer's experience— yours may be different!
