What advice would you give to someone who is debating studying abroad?

If you have a chance - take it. Consider many options or go for a place you've always been curious about. Think of it as a (potentially) once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that is worth much more than money. The world is very large, and discovering as much of it as possible is an incredible good, for yourself and others.
