Regarding the editorial “Don’t be shy about study abroad“: I feel student hesitation to study abroad may be due to fear — fear of crime (especially in the United States), communication, medical treatment and food.

Also, check with the embassy of the country in which you wish to study, because they too may have some good leads. Study abroad is an opportunity of a lifetime. You shouldn’t miss it. Just plan ahead and be prepared.
