This semester I was looking for a suitable 's programme abroad and applied to several universities in Europe.

After a couple weeks of weighing each programme's pros and cons, I decided which one I'd like to attend, and today I sat down to decline the other offers.

It made me a little sad. After all, they were nice programmes, and they went to great lengths to make us feel welcome, even before we went there.

But each place I decline opens up for someone else, and that's a nice thought.
