Hi Cindy.  Where are you planning to study? Once I know the 
country I can get more information for you.  I've never studied 
abroad, but might be able to help as far as the cultural aspects, 
depending on the country you're planning to go to.

>I really want to study abroad next year.  I was curious about how 
those of you who have studied abroad liked it, and if there were 
difficulties that you would not have faced if you had stayed 
back.  For example, how did you get your textbooks in an 
accessible format, and were the professors abroad willing to work 
with you? As far as the culture is concerned, did you find that 
people were less accepting of you in other countries? I really 
want to study abroad even if it would be a challenge, but i guess 
i am trying to figure out what i should plan for, or if there is 
anything i should do in advance to prepare.
