"My university had a tutor program for everyone who needed it but, personally, I didn't have any problems with passing my classes. I even noticed I was doing better than many American students and ended up proofreading their essays during my last year."

"Studying in the USA is an opportunity that is well worth it if you have the urge for doing so. The way studying and athletics are combined is unique. If you want to concentrate seriously on both, the USA is a perfect choice."
