I'm a Canadian student. From the MSAR, I'm shocked to learn that most schools accept 0 international students. Even those that accept internationals do so at an extremely low rate of 1-10%. For NYU, out of 160 matriculants, only 1 was international. For Einstein, out of 184 matriculants, only 7 were internationals. For Columbia, 9 out of 155. Other schools are even worse. I am pretty sure that, even though the average GPA of matriculants is 3.6-3.9 for most schools, the average only for internationals would be 4.0 or very close like 3.95, considering such a low rate of acceptance for internationals. (Internationals must be competing against each other, basically.) I'm starting to lose hope.
