Seoul National University is proud of it's title as the top University, and you can feel it even as a language student

Overall
I am currently attending SNU as a language student, and I am certainly not regretting it. Naturally the courses are intense, with high imput and high expectations. We are working on grammar points that friends of mine are studying in higher levels than I am currently in, only because we are very fast on our material.
If you understand how to work on a course and actually put in the effort, it is definitely worth it thoug. I am advancing quickly and I am more and more comfortable actually using Korean in everyday life.
The main con is probably how SNU sees it's language students. There is no way of not noticing the "second class student"-vibe that you have on campus when you compare the language institute to other colleges. The fact that language students can't access any other facility such as the library or gym on campus stresses the feeling. 
However, being able to quickly advance and actually use SNU as a reference certainly outweights the cons.
