What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Yes, it was my first time abroad, and is an experience everyone should have. You become a stronger person by traveling and you see things you could never imagine.

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

Great professor, wanted us to have a true abroad experience, bringing in many Irish ideas on accounting, such as the CEO of St. Patrick's Day and other cultural excursions.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Great help with everything, may it be setting up trips, finding food, money, etc...

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

Great apartments, great location outside Dublin

* Food:

Irish food just isn't that great.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

So many chances to see the city, meet business professionals, and get outside of the city.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

No problems whatsoever

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