With the energy and excitement you gained from study abroad, you might be thinking more about your direction in school and your life goals.
Think about all of your plans for the future. How has your new perspective changed what you might want to do or where you want to do it?
….but don’t be hasty. Take a few months to consider your options and to feel settled at home again before you change your major or finalize other significant plans. What seems like a great idea initially might not be your final decision in the long run.
Think long-term. What careers seem to fit well with your skills and interests? Internships and volunteering can give valuable insight into what a career would really be like.
Attending Graduate School in the US
If you are planning to attend graduate school after you finish your undergraduate degree, you will likely need to request additional transcript copies from your school abroad. To do so, visit the school's website and follow their stated proceedure for requesting a transcript. You can order the transcript(s) be sent to yourself or to the school directly but if you send it to yourself be careful not to open the evelope containing the transcript as this will make the transcript no longer an official transcript. Tip: When ordering a transcript internationationally, you might want to order an extra or two to keep on hand in case you need them in the future!
