The greatest number of both international and domestic students surveyed have family incomes between $125,000-$250,000, with 9 and 69 students respectively.

The survey shows that international students hired a private admissions counselor to help with the college admissions process at a slightly greater rate than domestic students—28.6 percent compared to 22.6 percent, respectively.

There was very little difference between reported SAT and ACT scores of domestic and international students in the survey. While international students reported a slightly lower SAT score, they also reported a slightly higher ACT score.
