mursis Posted November 24, 2013 Share Posted November 24, 2013 Hi, I was wondering if there are any Scandinavian people around. It would be interesting to discuss and compare stats and the application process in general. I'm from Finland and I'm applying to a couple of PhD programs in the US. There aren't that many Finns studying in the US, which is why I'm not sure how experienced universities are for instance in grade conversions, etc. According to WES, a Finnish 3/5 more or less translates into an American 3/4, but I'm not sure if universities refer to WES or other similar services when converting grades (after all, 60 % sounds a lot worse than 75 %, doesn't it). Also, if somebody has any questions related to studying in Finland (it's free, after all!), I'd be happy to try to answer them. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
