This is a rarely asked question. Once you have a clear understanding of why students leave a school, find out why they stay. What are the personalities of students who successfully navigate the waters at each school on your list? Do they match your personality? Is the school able to provide you with this information? My guess is that many schools cannot. But you have the right to ask this very important question.
What is the profile of the international student who is successful? Compare this information for all of the schools on your list.
