When you pay the University, they will not take dollars--they want it in won. Therefore, the payment has to be transferred over to won currency. Although there is no way to get around pay an exchange fee, I was hoping to be a little smarter and pay a little less than going through the bank. Therefore, I decided to go through my credit card company. A tip of advice--that isn't any better. The exchange fee is crazy expensive! I'm not sure what suggestion to give--just to make sure that you do your research to find out the best deal. I can say that paying with a card instead of electronically transferring funds was way quicker and easier, though.
On April 1, I paid all of the fees and by April 10, I received my receipt and....MY LETTER OF ADMISSION! ^_^
|Admission to Sogang University!|
I won't lie--I was so giddy the following 4 or 5 days. I am still very excited! Once you receive your admissions letter, you are finished with their flow chart. I was also contact about my dorm. Gonzaga Dormitory here I come!
|Gonzaga Dorm--my summer oasis ^_^|
Look out for the next episode of my pre-departure process--getting a flight to the other side of the World! ^_^
