International Applicant???

Hi, I was just wondering what the standards of international students for Brown was...
In their website, they said people who live outside of the country should apply as international applicants.
I am a non-US citizen, and I am not a permanent US citizen.
I, however, do have F-2 (or A-2 if I have to go out and come back in) visa, and have been living in the United States for 5 years now.
I am fully capable of speaking English, have taken the SAT's and stuff, but I just realized that all these may be meaningless if I were an international applicant...
Does Brown see me as an international applicant?

    If you're living in the US, you're not an international applicant.

    That's not necessarily true. OP just said hes not a US citizen and has only lived here 5 years. OP, did you mean you're not a permanent US resident? Basically, are you going back to your "home" country during summers and vacations? If your actual permanent residence (and not your school dorm, temp housing etc) is outside of the US, you would be an international applicant.

    As for standards for Brown, intl students have it a bit tougher for sure. But considering you studied in the states for your high school yrs, i think you'll be viewed somewhat as a tweener. And that could even be a good thing, depending on your background.

    TripleBz is correct. Wooje: international applicant status is based on US citizenship or holding a Permanent Resident card (green card). This is the sole determinant -- bruno14 is incorrect. You must apply as an international student.

    Sorry, I must have read what he said wrong. I missed the part where he's not a permanent resident.

    transfer: often the advice you gave, i give myself. However, in this circumstance, I can guarantee you (and wooje) 110% that what I posted is correct.
