Studying abroad in college is a hassle …


When I first started the study abroad applications at my university i thought that it would be pretty straight forward.  I would fill out a college application, similar to what i did for my current university in the USA, get a few letters of recommendation, print out an official transcript, and I would be on my merry way.

I was completely wrong.  The application process is full of interviews, tons of different applications, checking every last penny making sure you can afford to pay for every last thing, getting signatures from every other office on campus, and too much more.

Although I think it will be completely worth it in the end, once I am actually IN Japan, yet as of now it is taking a serious mental strain to keep up with everything.

I think keeping up to date about the process when I have time can be an interesting project, especially if everything goes according to plan.
