momofkhm Posted June 26, 2014 Share Posted June 26, 2014 DD is an international affairs major so it's mandatory. (She wants to anyway.) How helpful is the sending school with practical information about where they will be? Things of concern - plane, phone, food, ?? She's applying to University of Mannheim in Germany and at earliest will know in November to be there in January. She's found out that she can get university housing but either they don't have a meal plan or the international students aren't eligible. So how much for food? Will they have student rates for airfare? (Prob not, but worth asking right?!) How should we deal with a phone so we can talk with her? She will be in school in Germany but plans to travel while there. Or am I better off discussing all this stuff with a travel agent that we know? Thankfully, we do have family that will treat her like family 2 hours from Mannheim. And she found someone last spring that will be going to Mannheim the same time she is. I think they plan to room together. They seem to actually be friendly, maybe not yet friends. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
