    higher advantage if no fin.aid??

    I was wondering if someone who does not apply to be considered for fin. aid has a better chance of getting admitted. For ex., if you say "no" for fin. aid consideration on the application.
    OR does it not matter at all?

    Also, how generous are schools with fin. aid to international applicants?

    It's doubtful that saying you don't want to be considered for financial aid would give you any sort of leg up. Just because you say you want to be considered for it, doesn't mean they're going to offer it to you (I know this from experience).

    In terms of being international, I don't think this makes much of a difference either. If you're a strong candidate and you have a need for the aid, I don't think it matters much where you are from.
    Process and dismissal. Shelter and location. Everybody wants somewhere.
