No. Since your citizenship is of the US, you will be considered a domestic student.

I am in short, a clueless ninth grader, with a substantial dream. I really want to study medicine in the US, hopefully in Ivy League schools like Harvard and Johns Hopkins. I am a U.S. citizen currently living in India. I am a student in the CBSE board of education.

It’s great that you are starting to prepare this early for your dream. In order to have the best chance at getting a seat as a pre-med student at a top U.S. university, you will have to consider the following factors: Grades, Difficulty of Curriculum, Test Scores, Extracurricular Activities, Letters of Recommendation, Statement of Purpose and Supplementary Questions, and a possible Interview. You will want to take the most difficult course of studies that you can handle well. Try to maximize your sciences and math courses. Be sure to take Biology, Physics and Chemistry, in addition to as much Calculus as....View More

I'm a US citizen currently studying in India. Would the US citizenship help my chances of getting admitted into a top US university in any way or would I fall under the same category as other Indian applicants? Moreover, is there any way I could qualify for in-state tuition?

Hi there,As a US citizen, you will be considered a domestic and not an international student for admissions purposes. The fact that you have studied in India will put you in an interesting category, as you have an interesting perspective and background. Make sure that you think deeply about this and include it in some way in your application. If your parents maintain a residence in the U.S., you may be considered in-state for tuition purposes. But if your family previously lived in the U.S. and is now overseas, you will not be considered an in-state student for tuition purposes.....View More

How do AP courses and exams affect my college chances from India? (US Citizen). Does it matter how I prepare for the exam?

You'll likely be treated the same as all applicants regarding AP exams.  Some schools don't actually look at the exam results as they only consider those if you're offered admission and to grant you credit.  Others may consider those scores so it's worth asking the schools you're applying to about how they review test scores.  As for AP courses, they are considered rigorous, but your application will be considered like all others in terms of did you take advantage of the curriculum that was offered to you.  There have been a lot of questions answered already about AP exams on....View More

I'm a US citizen studying (to be enrolled in 11th grade) in India in a Cambridge International AS/A level program. It offers 2 tracks (Science & Commerce) and neither of them have foreign language in the curriculum. Unfortunately I did not take any foreign language courses during my 9th & 10th grades either. Many of the US universities seem to require atleast 2 years of foreign language. Is this requirement a must-have or can this be substituted with a SAT Subject test in German/French for example?

Many universities understand that the Indian curriculum doesn't allow for foreign language in your +2, and this is OK.  Since you're saying you also did not take a foreign language in your 9th and 10th, I recommend writing something in your application about why you weren't able to take it.  If you speak another language at home you can also talk about that in your application.  To show some level of proficiency in a foreign language, you can take a test as well like an AP or SAT subject.  However, some universities may be able to admit you even if....View More

While the Ivies are great, every single student needs to broaden their scope in terms of schools to apply to. There's never a guarantee with admission to an Ivy and it is a reach for every single student who applies. With admit rates around 5% it's tough for even the top students. I recommend that you broaden your list of schools; sometimes being the big fish in a smaller pond is a better strategy.

Hi there, please give us more details. What sort of curriculum are you in, test scores, grade composites, extracurriculars, do you need financial aid? Are you limiting to US or also interested in the UK and Canada? Open to all areas of the country? What sort of environment would you like to be in? Happy to help once we get more details.
