My advisor took me step-by-step through the process
My friends and family must have thought I was bonkers when I told them I wanted to attend graduate school in the UK. I questioned my sanity a bit myself. Once I'd made the decision, I wasn't quite sure where to begin.
One of the universities I was looking at directed me to Across The Pond. From that point on, my Across The Pond advisor took me step-by-step through the process of not only applying to university, but considering and accepting the offers I was made, getting the financial aid ball rolling, getting my visa, and even prepping me for my journey overseas.
Every aspect of living and studying overseas was considered, and even unusual questions were met with a willingness to find resources to help me out. I am a planner, and making a move this big was nerve-wracking, not to mention hard work! It was all made so much easier knowing that I had a support network in a personal advisor during the whole process. It was a wonderful opportunity to be able to work with them, and I highly recommend it.
