  1. Before studying abroad, we must have idea bout expenses. Thanks for sharing and have good time!

  2. Except ‘Broadens career goals’, I don’t agree with anything. May be this was true in the past, say 10 years or so ago, but not anymore. You can take the course you like online (without spending a ton of your parents’ money). Majority of the developing countries these students come from are doing far better than the US. And my biggest complaint is, these foreign kids essentially run the foreign universities by paying steep fees, but when it comes to offering a job in the foreign country, majority of the employers tell them that they will offer them a job, but will not process visa. Have noticed so many kids shocked on this point, but it is the fact. Every student must look at both sides of the coin, which unfortunately very few do. I don’t know what it is, like prestige or something, but they want to study abroad.

    Everyone should remember the saying ‘Grass on the other side is always green ‘.
