Can I apply for college as an international student after graduating senior high school?

I don’t think I have done enough in my capacity to get accepted to my dream college so I want to make an effort for another year and apply then. I am currently promoted to grade 12. So what do you advice me to do? Can I still make it after finishing my senior year?

You can take a gap year to improve your application. However, you should only do it if you have plans for that break. You shouldn't stay put and just chill in the gap year. Try to come up with a project or do some internship.

Google "gap year" and you might find some great opportunities.

But either way, do your application this year so you can learn about the process and give it a shot.

Good luck!

Will doing my application this year have a negative impact?

You might want to look into going to a community college and then transfering over.
