I wish I had known...
That I never needed a translation of my diploma in Norway just a "dichiarazione di valore" which is a proof that it is what it says, from the embassy in Norway

This goes for all Italian universities, learn Italian and find a Italian course, you'll find much more local friends, and the experience will be more different than staying home..

Choose the spring term and you will love it. It┤s not that far to the sea or to the lakes.

bocconi is known as top university - people there accordingly can be snobbish; on the other hand i could not really detect a difference in course quality to my home university

at first glance milan might appear greyish and unfriendly. in fact, i found it much different from other italian cities i had been to earlier (florence, rome, . . .). however, you will find out that milan, besides being noisy and stressful can be an extremely interesting place to live. many interesting places are near - i loved the ligurian cost with places like camogli, santa margherita or noli. there is such a lot of beautiful and interesting places in italy, try to see as much of them as possible!

Expenses
Main source of funding:
Family
Other sources of funding:
Personal savings
Work opportunities:
I didn't want/need to work
Personal spending habits
I was traveling much more and going out much more in Milan than in LA, so my expenses went up a bit more. But the life of an international student found many situations of frugality in travel and nightlife.

Personal comments
Bancomat saves the day in so many places - you have no problems getting money. Setting up a bank account - that is not fun and a bit difficult. The bureaucracy in Italy can be a bit debilitating at times, but that is the way it goes. With the other parts of the lifestyle, it balances out.

There is not much contact with the local students, you really have to work for it. also not that many cources to choose from if you do not speak italian. no campus life.

Great city and a good school, but not as social as, for example, going to an american university.
