Personal recommendation
I think as an institution its awesome. Its intense but its because it is one of the top schools in Korea. It DOES expose you to real Korean day to day experience...but there's a big clarification with that...don't assume you are actually participating...You are there yeah, but you aren't involved. For their biggest 2 events (Yonko-jeon and Akaraka... they don't even have designated areas for you to sit because, well...you are just there and thats it. Areas are taped off by department and you probably aren't included in a department since you aren't a regular student so you probably won't get a chance to mingle with e.g.; Korean native poli science students because you are on exchange so despite you having the same major and being under the same department...your class is in english, you are already isolated)

Course recommendations
Courses are NO joke. If you are in a curve class and have Johnny the A++ kid you are (excuse the word) f**'d hahahaha. He will totally ruin the class curve for everyone. The classes are hard, but worth the work....it def teaches you the educational culture in this country and how it differs from your own (at least mine did...in America its safe to say many colleges spoon feed you compared to Yonsei...It's a drastic change) NO interaction with local students unless you HAD to be or got paired into a group together..Or else they would've chosen each other. CLASSES ARE IN ENGLISH THOUGH HOLLLLLA!
