I'm considering studying abroad next fall, but I can't decide if I want to do an 8th semester or graduate early this spring. My university has a campus in the UK so it's a really easy process for me and all regular US scholarships/government loans would apply. I would likely end up taking out an extra $4,000 in government loans for that semester that I wouldn't have to if I just graduated early. I think it's worth it but I want the opinion of anyone who studied abroad, thought about it or even just wished they did. Should I go for it? Send me advice groupthink!


I went! I loved it and just came back. Big thank you to everyone who gave me such positive advice. I'll have to post about my adventures in Europe soon!
