Suppose I am an international student living in country Y and I apply to university Z in a european country/developed asian country Q. Would my chance for admission into Z, if applied, depend substansially on whether I did my previous schooling in Q or not? Would this be different for different levels like Bachelors and Masters?
I do my Bachelors in India and try for Masters in America
I do my Bachelors in America and then try for Masters in America again.
Of course, I do agree for some countries there is additional process. Eg: Germany an Indian student has to do one more year of highschool before university in undergraduate but that is not important for me here. I only care about the raw rates.
N.B: By competitive college I mean a place where there is a bit of competition for seats. For places with no seat caps then theoritically none of this matters.
