I'm an international student and I need full-ride for Geography. But here, on collegevine, is said that i need perfect grades in math. I have most Bs and one C. Other grades are mostly As and some Bs. Can I still be accepted with full-ride? To Mount Holyoke, e.g.
Of course, you can! A chance calculator doesn't take into account particular situations. I know people who have grades on the low end who have gotten free or almost free rides. So I think it is entirely possible.
Hey @Jane_f! There are some really great responses here, but I just wanted to chime in and reiterate that you can certainly still be accepted with a C in math! I will note that full-ride scholarships for international students are difficult to get, so it's important to have additional options lined up!
I don't necessarily think you need perfect grades you never know if something happened that affected your grade performance mention that in your application
There is no guarantee, but I would say colleges look for consistency and a well rounded student. Based off of that, if you have other extracurricular activities to make up for the lower grades, you could get a scholarship.
There is no way 🙅 to tell if your struggle in math 🧮 will 100% affect your acceptance with a full-ride💰. There are several factors ⚖️ taken into consideration when it comes to acceptance alone. Because of this, my advice is to continue trying and pushing through🏋️. Because math may be a weakness of yours, look towards other factors that apply more towards geography 🌎 that can serve as a strength. Gain internship or research🔬experience and excel in various extracurriculars related to geography 🌎. Work on your writing ✍️ as well, as your essay will play a tremendous role in the acceptance process.
