bechkafish Posted October 21, 2015 Share Posted October 21, 2015 A couple of people (faculty and classmates alike) have suggested to me that I shouldn't limit myself to applying to PhD programs only in the States, especially given the fact that I'm all about continential and the ideal place to study that would be, well, the "continent". I keep wavering back and forth on whether to consider that an actual option... It's fine and exciting in theory, but I've never vacationed outside of the Eastern US, let alone lived somewhere else, and my mind keeps trying to weigh academic advantage (if indeed there even is one) against all the anxieties that such a move suggest (homesickness, loss of support systems, etc.).Has anyone left the country for graduate work, and if so, are you happy with your choice? Is there anything you would suggest to someone thinking such a transition over? Maybe any advice you wish you had had? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
