I hold permanent residence or U.S. citizenship but live and attend school abroad. Is it better to apply as a U.S. student or as an international student?
This is actually not a decision you can make. You will report your citizenship(s) on the Common Application. We will consider your citizenship(s) along with your experience abroad in our holistic, context-based application review. Rest assured that it isn’t “better” or “worse” one way or the other. At Yale, because we offer need-blind need-based aid regardless of citizenship, the admissions process for all applicants is the same.
