Question: What is the typical currency exchange fee for USD->Won in Seoul at banks and currency exchange shops? Would it be cheaper to do that, or use an ATM machine to withdraw from my debit card if my card is accepted? Will Mastercards on the Pulse network work in Korea?

I would suggest you go with getting the currency changed by someone at Inchon when you land. I had a heck of a time trying to exchange my USD to Won at the Woori Bank (우리은행). I don't recall what the problem was, but I just pretty much gave up. I believe that the debit card will work, but only if you have set it up with your bank at home prior to going to Korea. Also, with my debit card, it will charge a hefty fee to use it internationally.

Hi, I managed to look around and found these, perhaps they would be useful for you :) Admissions Guide for International Students http://www2.yonsei.ac.kr/entrance/2011/fore/upload/2011intguide.pdf Scholarship Information: http://www.yonsei.ac.kr/eng/campus/financial/ 1) Yes definitely. There are plenty of scholarships to choose from and from many different organizations. I'm not sure about their individual requirements, but you may wish to enquire more about them through Yonsei University at this address: [email protected] 2) Yes definitely. In fact, you will be required to sit and pass the Korean Language Proficiency test before taking undergraduate classes. It is okay if you do not speak Korean, as you will have intensive Korean lessons in the first 1 to 2 years. Your degree course might be longer than 4 years if that's the case. 3) I'm sure you will do fine. It is hard to make a comparison for foreign students entering Yonsei because the testing standards are so different between different countries. But, besides looking at grades, I believe that having a well-rounded education including co-curricular activities will do you well in getting into Yonsei. 4) Yes. Dual majors are allowed. These courses will be taught in Korean in Yonsei. 5) I don't think you have to worry too much about being ostracized. I'm sure you will be able to make friends and share your knowledge and experience with your new Korean friends. It will be quite intimidating at first, but don't let it discourage you.

Yonsei is such a gorgeous place to be. The campus is gorgeous for one thing (I have a thing for architecture), especially the library. Yonsei's international dorms is very diverse and you will get along well with most of the people on campus. I suggest however to go attend a university in the states and do a study abroad/transfer, because you might get a scholarship in the states and sometimes depending on the exchange program that Yonsei has, your scholarship or grant that your institution in the states gave you may pay for that year you are studying at Yonsei. Plus it usually easier to get into a university anywhere in the world if you are already at a university. If you are living in Korea and is Korean, usually they look at your high school scores. Not so much if you are international though. They tend to look at university scores, because actually I forgot why. Don't worry about the language, because you will usually take language courses first and if you do study abroad, some of the courses are taught in English. Study abroad I suggest to have a "taste" of what's it like at a Korean university. Then you transfer. You will not be ostracized at Yonsei. It is very diverse and you will make friends. Sure you might be stared at on the subway or bus, but just ignore and go with friends that you met in your dorms or classes. Good luck if you get into Yonsei.

Im sorry i cant answer the specifics to going to a korean university because i dont know the answers... But i do know there are quite some people with totally different races studying in korea. But one thing about going to korea only knowing english. People might be scared of you cuz i know some koreans have that...fear of english. So if you get lost on the streets...and you go asking around in english how to get to somewhere...It might be hard.... Most people don't know how to speak english very well anyway. I think the university would...MOST PROBABLY be teaching only in korean... So you might have to take something maybe similar to what ESL is in america....

You can exchange money at the airport or a bank, you need to talk to your bank before traveling since some will not allow ATM use in Asia. Your mastercard will work where accepted at stores. I usually just exchange some money when I arrive, it is the simplest thing to do.

No north Korea has a very crazy dictator and is barely above a developing country if North Korea attacked South Korea now could easily stop their invasion but when North Korea first invaded South Korea;South Korea wasn't strong enough to defend itself but now it is think about it like this the North Koreans have to put there best and well well fed soldiers at the 38th parallel all the South Korean's do is put a tall solder there

North Korea is stronger militarily. North Korea has nukes. South does not. South Korea's biggest problem with war with north korea is that seoul can be hit by traditional artillery. South Korea is much better economically. If it wasn't for aide from China, north korea would have economically collapsed many years ago. Their economy is a joke.
