how 'bout financial aids/scholoarships in USA schools?
i want to study in the states particularly UC Berkeley, UCLA, or Stanford (pinaka-mataas na pangarap ko). my uncle lives within biking distance of UC Berkeley (alanganin lakarin at magdrive)
i checked sa website
ng UC berkeley, it says there they generally don't give financial aid/scholarships to international students, so international students have to look for private companies/organizations that give financial aid/scholarship. what companies, which have offices here in manila, give financial aid/scholarship? btw my aunt (the one near UC Berkeley) happens to be a nurse in the UC Berkeley infirmary. i haven't read in the website about qualified students who have relatives in the UC Berkeley staff. i emailed her na pero hindi pa nag-rereply.
i plan on studying here for 1 yr (hopefully UP or ADMU), then take the SAT I and SAT II here, then go abroad. ganun pinsan ko eh, her dad (my uncle near UC berkeley, US citizen for about 8 yrs) let her finish her freshman yr in UP, then he petitioned her. she didn't pass UC Berkeley, but she's in UCLA now (medyo bad trip tito ko dahil diyan).
