My daughter will be studying abroad in England in the Spring. We are confused about how she banks for the 5 months she is a student in the UK. Her Midwest US bank has no options for her. Wells Fargo, my bank, has no options. We've heard BOA does, so we are going to talk to them. And we've been told that she should just open an account when she gets there and then wire her funds from her US bank. If you've done this, what worked for you?

I'm a junior, and I have until tomorrow (!) to figure out where I want to study in the spring. I'd like to be somewhere in Europe - I study medieval European history in school - but I can't chose the right place. I want to go somewhere beautiful and culturally rich, continually stimulating and well located. I don't care about the language, and I grew up overseas so I don't need to choose a place that will expand my 'comfort zone'. Give me suggestions? I'm open to anything!

Anyone have any experience with the Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholarship? I'm applying (this week!) and it was indicated to me that almost all applicants go through an interview process. Any tips, suggestions, ideas on how to sell myself? (Additional info: I'm a doctoral candidate in English, focusing on contemporary world literature from places of long term conflict. I've heard that literature folks are not as well received because they don't "Focus on humanitarian projects.")
