Early last year, I realized I was interested in studying abroad. However, sorting through my school's options was quite intimidating. I knew that I wanted to try something new, but I didn't know enough to narrow it down to a country or even a region.
One day, I was waiting for a meeting with my Dean, and I noticed a Red Tree flier. It read something like "Film Internships in Colombia." Though I hadn't thought of internships specifically, seeing it on paper made me realize it suited me perfectly.
Around October, I sent in my application, and I was accepted shortly after. The entire process, I was astounded by the organization and communication. Other programs seemed less personal than the CommonApp website, and so I really appreciated the faces that came along with Red Tree. I decided before winter break to confirm my acceptance, because I wanted to solidify my summer plans before Spring to avoid the stress of applications.
