Don't look back, you've probably already cut down a tree by now with all the paperwork.
If I ever see the light at the end of this tunnel, I will publish a strategy guidebook dammit!!
I already have a whole chapter from my past experience:
-How to open a bank account in France (it took me 3months, my exchange was only 4)
Hopefully my strategy guide will include the following:
-How to navigate through French universities' websites, with 50% broken links
-Actually forget the website, I'm going to include all the important deadlines & forms
-Table of equivalence from Quebec to France education system
-Glossary of all French abbreviations (Never seen so many)
-Before leaving, rendez-vous with French Embassy, more forms to be filled
But seriously, I think it's gonna be worth it all if I manage to get accepted :) :) :)
I know it must not be as complex as I make it sound, but because I don't know ANY québécois who went to study in France, I feel like a pioneer with no one to turn to for advices. Can't imagine what it's like for someone who doesn't speak French. MAD PROPS.
