So at long last the time has come start preparing for the exchange semester this coming fall! I’ve spent a good amount of time until very recently on researching and ranking schools and courses, but finally the application process has come and gone and i can now say that i’ll be going to HEC Montreal in Canada (duh) in the fall! Yay! Signed the papers and everything today 🙂
I ranked three U.S Universities higher than HEC, but turns out at two of them won’t accept any incoming exchange students from our school next semester, and the last one…well, someone else apparently had a tad higher grades than me (just a tad! 😉 and got the spot instead.
Anyways; i’m very happy about going to HEC and also to experience Montreal and Canada, as i’ve previously never been there before. To this point i’ve certainly only heard good things about the country, and the school.
Now it’s time to start refining my very limited knowledge in French, since Quebec where Montréal is located is a French Canadian province. Thankfully the courses i plan to take are all taught in English though, anything else would probably have been problematic at this point 😉
In short: This has been a great day, and the onset of spring like days here in the south of Sweden right now makes any piece of good news even better!
