Study Away and Internship Programs in Boston

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Boston is a great town to be in for any college student. There are educated college students everywhere. As a result I thought the town was reasonably priced. In terms of my internship, I couldn't have been more happy with landed a finance job. The hours were tough but I have to put them in a one point in time so I am glad I got this first internship out of the way.

Review Your Program

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

On-site administration of your program

EiAbroad was presented to me by Rutgers after using them in the past and I have to say they were great. While there wasn't a culture shock there was a school to work shock.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

Even though I worked a ton I am glad I got to spend the weekends with new friends from all over. People that have the same interests.

* Food:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)

The city isn't too expensive.
