I'm actually going into my third year (pending my passing of final exams
) and am studying abroad. Im taking Business at Monterrrey Tech in Monterrey, Mexico. I am "uber" excited and can't wait to learn a new language. Im going for the year because I dont think a semester is long enough, and I also did not want to find two places of living in a single year, which could get pricey. While i have not completed the experience yet, I would definitely encourage you to do so because it gives you numerous opportunities. Firstly, you get to leave whatever University town you are in for a year (for me it's Hamilton, *gag*) and get to immerse yourself in a completely different culture. Secondly, you get to attend another university in the world, and still only have to pay the tuition of your current school
, which is a "megantic" opportunity. Thirdly, you can travel from your desired location and see more of the world! On school time! While it is true that my fourth year will be hell, since I will have no electives, and all mandatory business courses, it's worth it.
