As an international student, you contribute to that valued diversity.The next step is to think about your career goals and to choose a major.
I originally planned to address this post just to international students who were considering attending universities in the US.
I soon realized many of my comments applied to American students who planned to study outside the US as well as to international students who wanted to pursue their education in the UK, Canada, and elsewhere around the world.
