    Default International and Culture Experience

    On this part of the app I am having and issue with how to list some trips I’ve gone on. I went backpacking in Europe for five weeks after high school and visited like nine different countries and I am not sure how I should list this. Should I make a separate entry for each country or should I just summaries the trip and list three or four of the countries.

    Yeah I have everything else done just need to make photocopies I just don't want to screw up my chances with lame mistakes and such. Ugh I hate this kind of thing. I know I have a good application just need to get all my t's crossed and i's dotted.

    Well with the online app there isn't much room for explanation only a spot for country and city, purpose, and dates. Kind of limits what you can say.

    Hey yeah, I realise that sounded a bit harsh- I hope s/he didn't take it to heart.

    Yeah no worries, the question is pretty pedantic and I am usually not one to worry about such things. Usually I tend to feel that if a choice on whether I go comes down to something as small as exactly how a formed was filled out it's probably not something I want to be doing. I've just been rather frustrated with parts of the online application and have everything else done and just annoyed by how this part looks. Also my internet connection is very slow and I am overseas so has been a pain to do the thing, trying to get things sent home and junk.

    Yea:

    Dombay's Guide to the Application Process.

    Follow the directions. Only the directions. Do not make up your own directions. Do not ask stupid questions related to your inability to follow directions.

    "But Dombay sensei, why do you read the incoming forum then".

    Because im bored at my desk like you will be when you get accepted.

    And anyway, the above is good advice!
