Yes, I mean everyone feels that way. but once you get down here and get into a grove you will love it. "te juro".

Practice all the spanish you can before you leave- conversationally that is. I for one didnt wish I had done more grammar exercises or anything like that. go talk to people

Oye- ustedes que ya están en Santiago; ¿como es la vida nocturna? ¿divertido? que hacen los estudiantes normalmente- ¿fiestas de casa? ¿Discotekas?

tambien- ¿que tipo de música es popular? oigo que hay mucha reggae y dicen que hay mucho "house" (es como techno) en Sudamerica tambien.

Hey can someone tell me about the weather? I've heard it gets really cold by June? I just don't know what kind of clothes/outdoor gear to take!

Ok, well, PUC is a private catholic school whereas the U of Chile is public. They are the two top schools in Chile. The campuses are spread out across the city. Chilean universities don't have central campuses, for the most part. I like both schools, but I spend most of my time at PUC because I only have one class at the other university, so I have a lot more friends that I've made that go there. PUC has the reputation for being more conservative while U of Chile has a reputation for being more's really interesting having classes at both because you get to take part in the distinct culture that is on each campus. The other university for the Chilean Universities Program is Diego Portales but I didn't have any classes there, so I can't tell you how that is....

Thanks Paige, could you elaborate more on the classes you are taking and what you like/dislike about each school?
Comment by Paige Heisner on November 10, 2009 at 6:23pm
Carrie, I'm taking classes at PUC and U de Chile and they are both really great! My classes are certainly challenging, or at least they require a lot of time to be put in, but they are really worth it because I'm learning so much more than I would in a similar class at my home university. Professors are extremely understanding and helpful. I feel like what I'm telling you is very general...if you have any more specific questions let me know!
