How can I get help here as an international student looking forward to applying to universities of my choice?

I am a junior in high school (11th grade). When I was completing my profile, I came across many details (necessary) that don't include me because I am an international student. It made me think to look for other options, but I quickly came to realize that collegevine is the best out there and seemed more helpful. If there is anyway I can include my country and the grading system we have please let me know because it would make it so much easier and will keep me on track.

So the chancing engine is optimized for domestic students but you can still use it it will just be off at the more ivy+ schools and elite LACs. Generally, if you are from an over represented area (China E Asia India, and Europe to a lesser extent and if they are need-aware) for both geography and need our chances would likely be 1/3rd of what CV says you have. I haven't tested it but I would say it is a good rule of thumb. Also, try to have no needs improvement for rigor academics extracurriculars. And have least 2 excellent.

Hope this helps and feel free to ask for clarification. Id be happy to help.
