I'm a student from Australia, applying to college in the US. Because our school year runs on a Feb-Nov cycle, I will have 8 months between the end of school and the beginning of college in the US.

Basically, I don't want to do nothing during that time, because I think that I'd forget most of what I've learnt in high school and be "out-of-practice" academically when I begin college in the US. So my plan is to take a light course load at my local university.

Is this allowed? Will I have a problem recieving freshman status in the US if I have already spent half a year at college in Australia? I obviously don't want to be forced to enter as a transfer student.

2. If so, what college?
3. What were your SAT 1, SAT II marks (dont post if personal)
