I honestly thought that I'd enjoy college/university, but I didn't. After completing my first semester(in US), I am now in the withdrawing process in my second as I was wasting my time and my money. I was taking all these GE's so I could say that I went to x school because it felt like that was what I had to do, but it just felt like high school but with more freedom. (I hated high school).
I know the school systems in the US and UK are different and that is one of the reasons the reasons I'm drawn to the U.K. I visited to see my boyfriend (another big reason) and after coming home, I've realized that there's so much more life out there that I want to explore. "Home" no longer feels like home. I do not want to be here and my decision is definite.
I am aware that UK schools are subject based so I will need to decide on a subject asap. I know that I should think about it carefully as I will be putting myself into debt to study a subject I'm "just picking." And it may seem like I'm rushing because I am. But is it all worth it? For me, yes. For various reasons. I don't want to wait and I will go to the U.K.
I've looked around a few schools and I think I've found one that seems reachable!
However, I'm broke. I'm wondering if i'm able to get financial aid or any kind of assistance with money as an international student? I've just emailed the school with a few questions but thought I'd get some first hand advance!
