I want to study medicine abroad, like in Europe. Spain is my favorite one, germany comes second. (I kind of know how to speak spanish). Everyone says it's a bad idea because I'll miss my family and it will be hard and blabla, so I'm not sure anymore. Also, in Canada, we have one of the highest needed GPA to get in medical school.
The max is 40, and they barely accept 34. Even if you get accepted with a 34, you need to ACE the interview.
I want to learn Spanish fully, i want to travel and i certainly want to move away from where I live (canada). (it's too cold and no sun. No sun gets me depressed. My province has the highest level of depression.) Anyway!

My advice is to decide from the get-go how long you will stay. And then commit to staying for the duration. Because you can get very lonely when you move away from everyone you know, and it can be very tempting to throw in the towel and go back home. It takes time to get close to new people. So be patient, and make the effort to get to know new people in the new place. Socialize. And find someone to study with. The new social bonds you develop will be your greatest asset, and they may have useful knowledge on how stuff works in the country. But by all means go for it!1

Study Abroad!! Some graduate students I know that studied abroad all said they had fun and the educational experience was worth it. We recently had a study abroad interest event, and the best thing I can tell you is view all of your study abroad programs and location options first. Some colleges may offer what you want to study abroad for and some don’t, and one program may offer more than the other. Also, be mindful of if financial aid will transfer with you when you study abroad. Best of luck to ya 😊1
