G'day people, Next year i might be coming to the U.S.A as an Exchange student.

For probably 5 or 10 months, I'd just like to ask....Would it really be worth the 10,000 AUS Dollars to come to the U.S.A?

And how long should i stay for 5 or 10 months?

Thanks.

i'd pass on coming to the U.S.

but if you must come i guess you should stay for 5 months.

europe seems like a more ideal place to study abroad.

I remember We had an exchange in High School for a week to one of our rival schools it was a dominant white school vs. the dominant hispanic school i went to, they were only about 20 miles apart and it was hell this country has a bad racism problem first of all... just the people are kinda rude in some parts, in the west were i grew up it was nothing but spanish.. now its a mix and the problems are outrageous..

I wouldnt mind being an exchange student, but to a country thats safe and where i could be accepted, maybe spain..

But if you do come, i hear UNM (University of New mexico is a friendly foreign exchange school) one of my alumni schools
Albuquerque is also a cheap place to stay.. great people... and culture... we have it...

out of those two choices i would go to the USA. what city would you go to? Boston or New York City seem like they would be the best choices for an exchange student to live in.

USA and Canada I think are pretty similar. Canada's just colder for the most part. Canada is known more for hockey and USA is known more for baseball. We're have some economic issues, but it does seem to be effecting most Americans yet.

Which cities would you be coming to? I don't think anybody will bother you because you're foreign, especially in big cities, which tend to be more tolerant.

The city you choose is probably more relevant than USA or Canada, because in my opinion both are fairly similar.
