guys GUYS, my professor along with a few other sources says the college I picked for study abroad sucks balls. Also... they refuse to tell me what classes they offer in English!! \oO/ A guy who went said they ended up canceling most of them and he had to take stupid crap like origami and basketball. So I teeter totter over to an adviser with a list of classes I want to take at some school to see what classes will transfer and she is a mean mean lady who isn't going to take crap. Surely Japanese Law I = American Law I but NO. So basically its all going to be electives anyways. I might as well take stupid crap like Origami if it isn't going to count! With that in my brain I'm considering a university called Toyo in Tokyo. It has a very good rep... but they offer like... 3 classes in English. But its in TOKYO xO !! Ok then there are 2 other schools near the Oosaka area. They aren't actually in the city though, and I'm am hard pressed on not getting stuck in the boonies. I don't want to end up in the El Paso of Japan, with nothing to do but rot in my dorm room. I hate trees and grass and the sort, I want giant gray buildings to block out the sun greeting me in the morning.
Ok so what do I do, I was all excited about going in April to Nagoya. Should I just go even though everyone says the school sucks, or should I wait until next August and go to a)Toyo in Tokyo with like no transfer credits, or b) school outside Oosaka with good transfer credits. Oh and this school near Oosaka is like 80% english speaking. Whats the point really?! I could just go to a college here and get that! What's the point of going to Japan to not hang out with Japanese people seriously.
ok wait let me sum up the choices
a) Nagoya : big city, shit school, shit dialect (I hope I don't pick it up >.>), shit classes, private room w/ kitchen, I get to go SOON (APRIL)
b) Toyo: big city, awesome school, dialect I'll actually understand @.@, shit classes, private room, I go in August ;( so faaar
c) Oosaka: fishing village 1 hour away from awesome Oosaka, awesome classes, have to share a room with 1-3 other people, school of white people, I go in August ;( so faaar
I had something more interesting to say but I've forgotten it already -( ' ')- must have not been that interesting.
