I am Back !
I know I have not been keeping up my promises of keeping my blog up to date. Well I am here now and here are some of the things I promised to you guys, but before that, since most of you would be already packing stuff to come here, here is some last minute advise to keep in mind:
1. Book your flight tickets early, so there is not some last minute problems. Also clearly understand the baggage requirements, since some airlines are very strict and if you are not careful you might have to leave some of your stuff behind or pay a huge amount of money to the airlines to carry it with you.
2. Try and take a flight which has the least lay-overs, since every-time you stop you have to walk through all the security checks again.
3. Carry all you important documents like VISA, Passport, University issued i20 and offer letter in a folder in your handbag. Checked in baggage gets lost all the time so carry a pair of clothing in your handbag as well.
4. Start looking for an apartment (if you are planning to live off-campus) right now. You can go to various sites like:
Though do not finalize anything until you have a look for yourself.
This is about it, if anything else comes to my mind, then I'll put it in my blog.
All the best hope to see you guys soon.
P.S. Keep in constant touch with your international buddies they are the best sources of information for you.
