If you're not an American, than you're international. 

False.

This is an advice thread, not a playground for you and your bratty playmates.

I'm not playing around.  I'm giving honest adivce.  If you're not a US Citizen, than that makes you a citizen of one of the 185 other countries in the world, aka An International Applicant.

If you are an American citizen and if you carry a US passport you are not international, no matter where you went to undergrad.

A student or work visa for Canada or any other country does not make you international. Only your citizenship does!

Meiji...you are completely wrong. Citizenship trumps all. If you are American, there is NO way you can be considered international.

I think meiji said something different (that not American=international is false), and s/he was right.  If you're not an American, but you got your undergrad degree in the US, then you are not considered international for admissions purposes (at least that's how LSAC identifies it).

This is true, but you are still considered intl for diversity and citizenship purposes, which usually impacts admissions.  On the flip side, an American with a non-US undergrad degree is considered an intl applicant, even though they are not intl for citizenship purposes and prolly not for diversity purposes.

International status is super relevant when it comes to being eligible for financial aid.

I only saw the FAFSA, and the only difference there is is among citizens, eligible non-citizens, and non-eligible applicants.  Is there anything else I should be aware of?

for their diversity purposes. I remember emailing Vandy and asking them why they didn't have any Canadians in their student body. They told me that being Canadian would add to diversity.

Now you are talking about merit-based (diversity-based) fin aid, right?

i'm nto talking about fin aid at all. In this case i'm talking about having more diversity in your application.
