    I was wondering if you knew if Sogang is a good program. I just got accepted, but I am not sure what to think about how easy it was to get accepted. 😐 I am waiting to here back from SNU. I just don’t know D:

      hello! Sogang is definitely a good programme, especially if you are aiming to be conversational ^^ I have heard only good things about the programme. Not that sure of SNU but I didn’t hear anything bad so far ^^ Are you talking about the regular language programmes? I think it’s pretty easy to get accepted, if you are paying everything by yourself. You just have to fulfill their basic requirements (of being at least a high school student i think) and have enough funds to cover your trip. ^^

        Anyung! Oh alright. Yeah, I guess since it is a language program, they just want your money. Haha. So I am just like blah I hope they are good. Did you enroll in one of these or through attending the college? I am sorry if you have written about this already, I just can’t sift through 4 years of material hahaha 😀 but yeah….blah. I need to get on this. I don’t want to be placed in level 1…

    Have you tried or seen any reviews on the Ewha’s Women’s university summer college? Will it be good to learn Korean in there and also since they are offering a subject in English…

    Hello! I’m interested in applying for Yonsei’s 2014 summer international program. I’m wondering about the acceptance rates…do the majority of students who apply get into the summer school? Or is it hard to get into? I’m currently attending a university in America, btw! Does that help with me getting in?

      hello! To be honest I haven’t heard of anyone getting rejected. As long as you apply early, follow instructions etc, it should be all right! (: Does your university have ties with Yonsei? A lot of American students (and other students) apply via their schools but I don’t think it matters that you are applying individually. If you are worried, best to email Yonsei directly (:

        Thank you for the quick response! My school isn’t affiliated with Yonsei I think, so I’ll have to apply independentally. I do really hope I get in…!
        Sorry, but another quick question: what do you mean by emailing Yonsei directly? Like my application or other questions?
        Thank you so much for your time!

          oh, I mean email Yonsei directly if you have any other queries 😀 Follow the application process as stated in their website! ^^

          Remember to check when they open their applications (: It’s getting (even more) popular every year, so play safe and submit your application early! It’s really fun and you will definitely enjoy your time there.
