im a Russian immigrant (10 years in the country), my status definitely did not help a bit

Wow, even though you got accepted to some amazing schools there, I'm kind of surprised by the rejections you got.  Surely hoped something like being only 10 years in the country would've pushed you over the line. 

If you don't mind me asking, because I'm kind of counting on this whole thing being a plus for me in the long run.  Did you have to overcome any other things other than language, culture?  Because I'm writing about being from middle of nowhere in Ukraine, being the first to go to college, overcoming poverty, etc.  So, maybe it'll be something.

no i didnt have any of that so it might be something extra for you.. my dad has a PhD and i wrote about him in my essay... the only other thing that could have helped me is that i was a long island chess champion for a couple of years (analytical reasoning).. but aside from a stanford waitlist I dont think I got any positive responses that I was not expecting.. I really hope it works out better for you

Playing chess? I was a chess champion of St.Petersburg for couple years...I dont think any of these helped me: being in the US for just couple years, holding a law degree from Russia, having L.LM in international law, chess and e.t.c...I got to schools which were accepting the majority of students with my numbers.

Why is this thread so dead, lol?  There must be some Russian/Ukrainian/etc people here. 

BTW, I was just wondering, how many people who immigrated here from former USSR actually apply to T14 schools?  It can't be that many right?

Hi! How would you guys translate the following into Russian?

"Is the applicant in good standing?"
"Transfer/Non-degree applicant"

Thank you!

why would you think it wouldn't be many? there are at least 30 at my school and they are only a fraction of those who applied.

Wow, what school are you in? 

LOL, I was just hoping there wouldn't be that many so that I would seem more "different", haha.

Berkeley. They aren't all Russian. I was basically giving a ballpark idea of how many from the former USSR. So this count includes Ukranians, Uzbeks, Kazakhs, Armenians, etc.
