Where in the world should you go? In her first post, Emma walks us through her study abroad dilemmas and how she eventually selected a city and program that aligned with her degree and interests. She's thrilled about making her way to Dublin and shares how her family, friends, and advisors, as well as a four-leaf clover, nudged her toward her decision!
Where we’re going, we don’t need luck!
In the soundtrack to my life, “Should I Stay or Should I Go” sums up my fall semester perfectly, as my journey to study abroad was no walk in the park! No, no, no, not one bit! Indeed, I was very lost in the park with no compass to make clear which path I should take and no map to answer my burning question: “Where should I study abroad?!"
I was searching all over the globe for a program that would satisfy my academic requirements, financial needs, and personal desires! I met with several advisors, made spreadsheets, and had weekly conference calls with friends and family to poll opinions. For most of the semester, I had several applications started in various different programs.
