Default Can I get in?

Hello. I am a domestic student desiring to attend U of I for actuarial science(graduate program). I am worried that not being an international student will hurt me. The number of international students in your program is high. Do they receive preferential consideration since they pay significantly more in tuition?

What are the gpa's of some admitted grad students? The dept's site only gives gre score ranges for admitted students. Thanks.

At just about any university I can think of, admissions and financial aid are two separate processes. The decisons to admit will be based on your academic potential and should be independent of the amount of $$ you are liable to put into the school.

Tuition is nomically the same for everyone, domestic or international (except that at most public schools it is lower for in-state residents). Once you are admitted, your academic profile plus your access as a citizen to state/federal aid, will determine how much of that tuitition you actually have to pay.

Bottom line: your domestic status is no disadvantage in admissions, and is an advantage in terms of financial aid.
