Overall
I wish I had known...
Don't try to take tough classes in a forgeign language/abroad- you need time to experience culture and travel. Also, try to emerse yourself, it's easy to find people of the same culture, but that's not what you're there for. Put yourself out there.

Paris is a big city, not always people find the time to be nice. The Administrative Institutions are the worse, they help you but they refuse to speak other language, just the french. Tip: learn as much french as you can before you arrive. At University, things go easier, aren't we all in the same?

I'd get my own independence, and i'd have the chance of being surrounded by all the people from the city and not just by students.

Pretty dificult to find a house in Paris. And the University Services do not help much. It's a life lesson to find your own place in that huge and beautiful city.

Personal recommendation
It is what it is. Most people are here because they got shoehorned in by their home university. It probably won't be a central part of your experience in France.
