Do you have cost estimating tool or profile assessment for international students?

Hi, I am from India and I am applying to USA colleges as an international student. I am unable to complete my basic profile as it seems to be only for American students. How do I create a profile by selecting India as my place? I want details like cost of education for international students and the financial aid available for them. Do you have cost estimating tool or profile assessment for us? Please guide.

Thanks

All colleges during their information sessions tell me that they don't have an accurate cost estimating tool for international students, but that they won't make us pay more that we can pay. I know that it is frustrating, but it's the best they can offer because money and stuff work differently in different countries. Btw, my counselors gave me a list of the US universities that give the most financial aid to international students. I am posting a link if you want to look at it. It has the average number, the percent of the international students that receive aid, whether it is merit or need-based, and what is the percent of international students at campus. I hope it helps you :).

If you can't use the cost assessment here, I would suggest using the net cost estimating tools of each of the college's you're applying too. Sure, it may become tiresome, but these tools are more accurate than Collegevine's tool. There are also other profile assessments, so I would use those.

Hope this helps.
