Amazing experience in an amazing location.

My experience in Istanbul was incredible. Turkey is so far from anything we know as Americans and will change your perception on life, culture and religion.The living there is great and cheap for food and housing. Bahcesihir University is a private school on the Bosphorus straight with rooftop lounges etc. Classes were all mostly good, sometimes the prof. didn't speak the clearest English but they were careful to offer extra help and clarification if needed. Student/night life was everywhere and I was never without something exciting to do. Over all highly recommend it.

Program Administration:
USAC is great and provide you with all the support you need, just know that the actual university administration can be less than quick and efficient in adding/dropping classes finding classes etc.
