    Scholarships for International Students in US

    You can definitely get scholarships if you are a strong candidate. I am not a U.S. citizen and I got financial aid from every college I applied to in the U.S. ranging from $25,000/year to $45,000/year. And most schools were pretty good (I chose Wellesley but I had offers from Pomona, Wesleyan and other liberal arts colleges). Big schools usually have more resources but yes, things are pretty tough as an international. The process is that they basically "accept" all candidates they want, regardless of financial need, then they rank them and give offers to as many as they can until they run out of money. So, for example, Wesleyan's overall acceptance is about 20% but they only accepted 3% of international students who required financial aid (they sent me the stats with my acceptance letter). It's a very tough procedure, but if they really like you, they will make sure you can afford it.

    IB is about to ruin my future and kill my dreams.

    First of all, chill. You did all that there is to be done. In the worst case, you will miss a year. Many students choose to skip a year, it may actually prove very benefitial and get you into an even better college. But again, the examiner might have been extremely strict and your mark will be raised. So, relax and think rationally before jumping off a bridge

    Confessions

    -English A instead of Modern Greek -Changed my schedule too many times
  7. It really depends on the country we are talking about. For example in Greece private education is FAR better than state (like, no comparison), while in Germany as far as I'm aware there are no private schools and the level in public ones is terrific

    Tell on a cheater or let it slide?

    Well, I actually faced that dilemma last weekend, when I was sitting the SAT. Two girls sitting next to me, right at the back of the class were practically coping everything of each other! The one was just sitting idly and then copied every answer from the other, I was really annoyed as you can imagine, because the rest of us were working on our own. I was ready either to b*tch slap them both or to tell, but I let it slide... Still not sure if it was the right call.

    Do any other IB kids smoke weed?

    In fact, I think weed is better than alcohol. If it came down to choose one to abuse, I'd go for weed. http://www.hailmaryjane.com/12-practical-reasons-to-choose-marijuana-over-alcohol/ -- here are some reasons that I feel too lazy to retype
