Hi! Its my dream to get a chance to go to the University of Michigan like you! However, i'm from Singapore and our education system is slightly different here. We take the 'A' levels instead of the SATs. I've tried sourcing online for help but they haven't helped me much. So I was wondering if you knew the procedure and how about I could go about getting in (: i'm sorry this is so long! (:
I somehow managed to get someone on Facebook that was from Singapore to answer your question. Here’s her response:
“Hey so international students are required to take the SATs to get into almost any college in the states. its the only comparison america has to level the playing field. and it’s the one most easily accessible for internationals. a lot of schools also require 1-2 subject tests, and some like Georgetown require 3. universities will need your SAT score through College Board just like America’s. i doubt there’s any way around this.”
Hope this helps!
i'd love to go to umich. is ann arbor a good college town? do you think a car is needed to get around? what are the dorms like?
Ann Arbor, Michigan is one of the top college towns in the country. It is surrounded by culture in every way. There is a great football culture. There is local arts and eateries in every corner. There are musical performances and shows of every kind available to students. If you are bored on a Friday or Saturday night, there is always something to do-whether it be a party or musical performance to attend. The actual campus is easy to walk around. Every place is within a 10-15 minute walking distance at most. If you want to get to North Campus though, you need to take buses and my friends say the buses are decent. Usually only upperclassmen who live off campus use cars, but I don’t think I’ll need one if I stay in the dorms.
My dorm is pretty nice and some are better than others. Some have better amenities (food, room size) while others have better social atmospheres (Markley is practically an all freshmen dorm). The better dorms have dining halls in them.
I don’t know what else to add, but message me again if you need any answers!
