I learned more during my time in Australia than I had in my first 3 years of College. Being forced to live in a new place, no matter where it is, is the essence of independence. I met the most interesting people from around the globe and I traveled wherever I wished, free from any responsibilities. I trekked the outback, surfed ... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Most definitely. It's the best experience I've had in my life because of the freedom and responsibilities that came with living by myself in a strange country.

Yes, study abroad was worthwhile. Once I realized that it was my experience to have and I did not have to define it by anyone else's experiences, it was easier for me to enjoy the culture and my time in Sydney. Study abroad really is what you make of it. I tried as much as I could to fit into the culture and do the things that m... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
