What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Absolutely. I learned so much from my internship, made so many new friends, and established lasting relationships. I would rate Dream Careers 5 stars every time.

Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

I completed a very rewarding internship through Dream Careers, receiving credit through New York University. The workload was not too much, and allowed time spent enjoying Los Angeles.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

The Dream Careers full time staff members were very helpful and attentive. They attended to our needs promptly and were constantly making sure we were enjoying ourselves and getting everything we needed out of the experience.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

Aside from the ant problem, Hitch Suites was a great place to live! It was very open and organized and allowed for socialization.

* Food:

Typical dining hall style food; it was decent, but exactly what you'd expect from a college campus.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Dream Careers was constantly holding social events for us: trips to Las Vegas, intramural sports, and more. We had something to do every weekend and most week nights.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

They made sure all of our needs were accomodated at all times.

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)
