Kosten und Gebühren

I don't remember much of an introduction, but it was always clear what I had to do and whom to talk to
Getting to Santa Cruz:
From Europe you have to take a plane, obviously, to San Francisco in this case.
There are taxi-services that transfer you directly from SF Airport to whereever you want to go in Santa Cruz (about 35 US$). In Santa Cruz there is a bus network that is free for students, once you have your student card.
You can buy cars quite cheaply, if you dare.
Non- Us driving licenses are accepted for the first six weeks after that you have get a US drivers licence.
Das sollte man mitbringen
Visa necessary must be organized beforehand, otherwise you'll be send back at the airport.
Once the papers were ready and complete (bank statement, vaccination) - which took some time things went smooth (about a week). You can pick up the papers at the consulate/embassy personally if you happen to live near one.
Graduate student housing on campus. About 80 places for 540 US$ (pretty expensive, but getting on campus from downtown Santa Cruz takes a while). 4 poeople share a floor with kitchen, two bathrooms and a lining room.
sorry no major stories here, just kkep to the undergrads ;-)
You will probably work harder than you imagined before and still have fun, or you can just enjoy your life. Jobs: on campus as teaching assistant, if you are there for a regular study, not as exchange student. Visa restrictions apply.
in town: not too many bars, but acceptable for a town of about 50,000 inhabitants,
party-life on campus. get into contact with undergrads - lots of fun;
Grad students work hard usually and often have family - less party there.
lots of choices: SF, Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe, LA - is rather disapointing, Santa Cruz itself is a surfer's place!
Ablauf des Interviews
Actually there was no major selection process, since demand was incredibly low. Probably due to the high costrs of such a trip.
