Overall Experience
It was definitely worth it; ICADS was amazing, and I feel like I gained so much independence and understanding of another culture. It also gave me the opportunity to have an amazing medical experience I could never have had as an undergrad in the US (putting in stitches, etc). - Rice University View Entire Review
