Admissions Advice

I have done a technical school in my country but not a university. Can I still apply to elite schools as freshman?

In my country, I went to a technical college-and not university- for a diploma and not a degree. I read that as long as you have not done university you can apply as freshman. Can I still apply as freshman?

Hi there! Do you mean a trade school? Could you describe what you studied, how you studied, and whether you got any degrees (and their level)?

If you have the equivalent of an Associate's degree, then you probably won't be able to enter college as a freshman. If not, they you may be able to "count" as a freshman.
