Has anybody here ever studied abroad? I was thinking about doing it within the next year and a half and have been looking into both academic and internship programs in London. My best friend did it and it seemed like he had a great time and he visited like 12 other European countries in the process. I've been mostly looking at semester-only programs, but the year-long looks more and more appealing. For those of you who did it, any advice and did you have a good time?
Too cool for school.
Reloaded, do it. Without a doubt, do it. I studied abroad (not in Europe - I was in China), but it was one of the best experiences of my academic/personal life. As far as semester versus year considerations, that depends on two things.
1) How attached are you to your home institution (ie., do you have a lot of friends there, etc.)?
2) How's your financial situation looking - living in Europe is a kick in the walletbook.

Being a strong teenager means nothing.
My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.
Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.
