Any advice on how to navigate the application for studying abroad and tips for the experience overall? I’m somewhat anxious about my academic record; it’s been decent, with mostly As and Bs, and a couple of Cs. However, I did receive an F once. Do you all believe this could significantly affect my chances of acceptance? On a brighter note, I made it to the dean’s list just last semester.
To be honest you might have little trouble getting an i20 that is what I think . If you already got i20 in interview that should not be a problem . If asked by interviewer you could say an any family emergency or sports activities due to excellence in any sport activity I lost some focus . Also try to build your profile by doing internships and projects and certifications would help .
You can highlight the progress you had in your last semester. This could be a positive point and help get the F out of focus. Also as mentioned by @Vband try to excel in other activities as well to build your profile.
All the best for your future !
I am currently researching for some internships for building my profile. Also, I haven’t gotten an i20 yet, and that’s what troubling me at the time.
To add on to the things that have been already said , just get started right away. Share your interests, your goals, and where you see yourself heading. From there, begin to map out your path. It’s simpler to handle any pushback when you approach it like this.
