    Shanghai. Cheap food, cheap drinks, cheap everything. Unforgettable experience. Money cannot compare the experience you will gain, so go wild.

    I did a semester in Barcelona. Best decision of my life. The european lifestyle is incredible especially the Spanish/Catalan culture. If you have the doughplease do it. It will be an experience that will shape you for the rest of your life

    If there was one thing that I regretted about college, it was not taking advantage and studying abroad.

    The whole point of studying abroad for a semester is immersing yourself in the country's culture. You CANNOT do that on a vacation. When you live there foran extended period you learn the habits, lifestyle, and ways of the country. When you live in a new country you experience the daily life of a local which isan amazing experience. Shows you how there are so many different ways to live and approach things. People should study abroad for a semester to truly get thefeel of a place

    I'm bias because I studied in Barcelona but I think its the best place to study. Amazing culture and art, right on the beach, great climate, people arefriendly/ hot girls, awesome food, and by far the best nightlife in Europe Clubs are open till 6am and its insane how much they love to party. Its such anincredible city. Please look into it.

    I'm gonna study in Ireland during Spring of 2010.

    I might possibly go to Europe to stay with my Godmother in Zurich, and of course, go around to the other countries as well. Can't wait.

    I hear study abroad is like 6,000$ in my private school, which is absurd.

    i'd recommend studying in Holland....

    full on European but everyone speaks English. i met a group of good peoples from the UK , Spain, Czech and OZ who were all studying at the same college here inHolland.
    but i do highly recommend study abroad....why would you want to do it at home if you have the means to do it in a country you otherwise WILL NOT be able tolive in let alone visit.

    people don't realize how locked down you are after college. you have student loans, mortgage, car payments etc etc etc probably a girl, hopefully not akid, but regardless you have so many financial obligations after college and such a low paying job. you are not going anywhere [​IMG]

    I went to a school that had a huge study abroad program (Tufts)....many Tufts students (something like 40 percent if im not mistaken) take asemester/year abroad and loved it. Look into South America or Africa if you want something cheaper. I have friends who studies at the University of Ghana andthey said the dollar went a long way. If you do Africa I would recommend Nigeria/Ghana/South Africa......no ethnic cleansings/tribal conflicts going on inthese countries but you should still take precautions.

    For south America, Tufts had programs in Costa Rica, Chile and Argentina....students I know who went there loved it.

    Central America my man.

    I recommend you Spain, great food and night life is [​IMG], ideal city for meValencia, people love to go outside, you always find something to do.

    Costa Rica is cool but more relaxed, sometimes like living in a small town. México is great too, Guadalajara takes the cake for any city, tapatias are[​IMG] and its really safe and has great culture.
