    Hello!
    I'm really interested in studying for my degree in America. However, I know there's a lot of procedures such as SAT's and Visa's to go through so I was wondering if anyone had a kind of overview of what you can expect to go through?
    Thanks

    Firstly you need to take the SATs and SAT subject tests, but some colleges have different requirements of what SAT subjects they want. So you'll need to check the websites of the colleges you are considering. It is good to take the SATs early so you can retake them if you are not happy with your score.

    Applying to America is a long and complex process that requires a lot of time and effort - however, it's well worth it in the end, since American unis are awesome! There's a rough overview here to give you an idea - that site also has pages that go into more detail on all the different parts of the process. Just ask if you have further questions!

    Another nice website is here. I think it's best for finding which unis to apply for. You can search for them based on location, SAT scores, size, cost, and such, to preclude you from having to go through each university's webpage. As an American, I remember using it a lot when trying to decide where to go for my undergraduate! And it looks like they have a nice section for international students as well, which gives the process to go through to take exams and apply for a visa.
