    Should I study abroad even though it means that I'll have to increase my loans by about 2k?

    I've been really looking forward to this study abroad program that lasts for 10 weeks, but thinking about the cost makes it seem too much of an extravagance. Even if I study abroad, I'm pretty sure I can keep my overall loans for my entire 4 years of college around 8k or so.

    10 weeks in a country you are studying will give you more appreciation and knowledge about the true lifestyle of the people than 10 years of reading books.

    My only suggestion would be to make the most of it and really go out there and meet people, don't spend all of your time around students.

    You don't want to look back in your later years and wonder, why you let this experience pass you by.

    Don't let chances like this pass you by. I think once I start college I will study abroad in South Africa.

    Having lived abroad, I have to say that you should go for it. Time spent living abroad can open your eyes and give you a new appreciation for life both abroad and home. That experience will define you and give you a much better appreciation for so many small things from culture to food.
