July 27, 2016 Awesome
Adapting - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I was able to grasp a better understanding of my own interests. I set some personal goals and was exposed to things I had never previously tried, such as netball (a women's British sport). - Brandeis University View Entire Review

Yes. I learned so much from mundane things such as cooking for myself, budgeting, shopping, traveling, finances, to making lasting personal relationships, to learning how to take charge of my own education. It was definitely worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was a very worthwhile experience; however, the students and the extracurricular activities dominated the experience. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

International exposure. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I think it was entirely worthwhile and experiencing life abroad for a year instead of just one semester was much more valuable.

July 26, 2016 Lse General Course
I discovered a city that I would like to live in in the future and enhanced my understanding of Economics by learning in a specialized institution. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I have learned a lot from the courses. They were challenging but being able to take classes from well-known professors in the fields is very rewarding. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I absolutely loved my time at the LSE. I was pushed academically and personally, and I was able to see much more of Europe than I had anticipated. While certain aspects of the LSE's academic system--like its exam-oriented structure--were overwhelming at times, I was able to find the support I needed from other LSE students and f... - Wellesley College View Entire Review

Past Review Amazing!
My experience abroad was very worthwhile. I had the freedom of discovering a new city completely on my own. It was a very thrilling experience not only in terms of freedom but exploring the culture of a completely new country and city. The education system was very different from the one I am currently in, it was a new challenge... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

It was truly one of the greatest and most fulfilling experiences of my life. I learned more about myself and my personal and academic interests than I ever had before. I made lifelong friends from all different backgrounds. All in all, I grew immensely as a student and as a person by studying abroad at LSE - Wellesley College View Entire Review
- How to cook - How to manage my time - How to get used to large sized lectures Conclusion: Matured as a person so it was very worthwhile - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Incredible to be in London, truly electric city. Structure of program was odd, as international students are graded while LSE students are not. Final exam schedule becomes very messy with US internships. Very appealing if interest in staying long-term in London. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
