Ecole polytechnique bachelor for international students? A SCAM?Watch
It's a top school with a long elite history. This particular program is new and not targeting the typical French applicant, more competing against Oxbridge/Imperial. You cannot compare it with the domestic engineering program taught in French in a military setting.Because it is new it is a bit more risky. It's competitive, acceptance rate is low but currently higher than MIT or Oxbridge. However, the first cohort is out and the profiles they show are at the very top, going for PhD or masters at MIT, Caltech, Oxbridge, Zurich or Munich. It's probably not the case for every undergrad but it is likely they generally get what they want.Why do you say there is no student loan? That doesn't seem right. Student loans are quite common in France, at least for students at top institutions.
