SAVE YOURSELF

3/10

I have never experienced such a backwards town as Springfield. I will NEVER go back there. The students are terrible and never learn from their mistakes. I ran out of things for Bart to write on the blackboard within the first TWO WEEKS.

A CATastrophe of a semester

3/10

Who cares about the cool places you'll visit with Study Cats Abroad, I spent my entire semester in struggle city! I was so excited about this program, as I am a HUGE cat lover and hope to one day be a successful cat lady. However, I am embarrassed to admit that I am allergic to cats. When applying for the program, I asked my study abroad advisor if allergy medication would be provided for those of us with allergies, and I was reassured multiple times that it would be and not to pack my own. Lo and behold, once we arrive in our first destination and my allergies start acting up, there was NO medication. I basically wheezed and sneezed my way through the semester. I couldn't even enjoy the cool cities we visited, as my eyes were too puffy to see properly. I guess the accommodations were alright, though.

Wandering Down This Road That We Call Life

10/10

Pennbrook University was amazing! I've never felt so much support from faculty like I did at Pennbrook. I could go for extra help during office hours, or just chat with any of my professors. Topanga was always willing to help me with my lady problems! I would also visit Mr. Feeny all the time just to talk, he has so much wisdom to share!

I would definitely recommend Pennbrook to anyone, but I might try to figure out your own housing if possible. I stayed in the campus dorms and got stuck with this crazy guy named Eric. Funny guy, but kinda weird...

The Exchange Student and the Goblet of Butterbeer!

9/10

My semester at Hogwarts was a truly MAGICAL experience! Although I had a little trouble getting to the Hogwarts Express (in my excitement I accidentally ran towards Platform 8 3/4, aka a brick wall, what a muggle mistake!) Madame Pomfrey healed my broken arm and black eye in no time!

When we arrived at Hogwarts the exchange students were immediately sorted into our new houses. Proudly representing Ravenclaw! My only complaint about the Ravenclaw common room was that we needed to answer riddles to get inside, which is tough after a few Butterbeers!

The classes were amazing, although I don't know if I'd recommend a full course load with a time-turner your first semester- it might be a little overwhelming for muggle exchange students. I would recommend taking a few courses such as Transfiguration, Charms, Potions and Defense Against the Dark Arts. If you take a History of Magic Course, be sure to ask the castle ghosts to help you study, as most of the material is about them! Oh, and only sign up for Divination if you can take it with Firenze, he's gorgeous! ;)

Although the classes were super interesting (for a muggle, at least!) not all of the professors were very approachable outside of class. I mean, one day I asked Mad Eye Moody if I could do some extra credit, and he turned me into a ferret!

The social scene was pretty cliquey, as the houses tend to stick together. It makes for some great competition on the Quidditch pitch, though!

How can this program be improved?

Maybe have a study abroad advisor meet the muggles in Diagon Alley, shopping by myself was pretty challenging!

Something bad...

7/10

I was excited about my time at Shiz but was sorely disappointed. From corrupt city officials and headmistresses, to being placed with a roommate I couldn't stand (nothing like unadulterated loathing to ruin the experience!), and dull academics - I would carefully consider before deciding to study here! The social scene was a blast, especially The Ozdust Ballroom and being close to the Emerald City, but it wasn't enough to make up for everything else.
