Yesterday I received my long awaited welcome packet. It contained almost all the information I had been just dying to know. Let me tell you, it was a lot of information, too much to put into one blog entry, so this post as well as the next few will cover everything I received.
Today I got an email that I have officially been accepted to Rikkyo University for Spring 2016. Good thing too, otherwise this would have been a really short blog, haha.
If you intend to study abroad at Rikkyo and want to get credits for it, make sure you work closely with your university to make sure all of your classes will transfer back to your home university. Depending on the type of exchange you do and your home university, the number of classes and which classes you take may affect your financial aid and planned graduation date.
Before going to Japan, even if you aren’t required to have a doctor’s appointment, I recommend scheduling one anyway (If you are going to Rikkyo, you’ll probably be required to). You’ll want to talk to your doctor to make sure you are up-to-date on all of your vaccinations and, if you take any medications, whether or not you will be able to bring your medications with you on your trip.
