I’ve made my decision! I’m going to Australia as part of an exchange program with Monash University!
I’m planning on taking one biology class, and three international studies classes, I anticipate that the unique biodiversity of Australia will make the class interesting, and different compared to biology classes taken at OU. I thought that the process of pre-equation would be very difficult, and many people told me that I should just wait until after I come back, and bring back literally everything to submit to advising and admissions. However, I sent links to course descriptions to biology advising (my IAS advisor gave me the email of the biology advisor in charge of study abroad equations), and after a few emails back and forth, I got two of the courses I wanted to take approved. The process was not difficult, but it did take a little longer than I expected.
The IAS classes that I’m taking were much easier to get equated, and I’m so excited to take these classes from a non-US point of view.
