You’re thinking about studying abroad. You can’t wait to start your adventure. But there’s just one problem – you don’t know which country to pick. So how do you choose? And how do other international students make the same decision? 

We wanted to find out! So we asked INTO’s Warren to interview Daniela and Felipe, Brazilian students at INTO Oregon State University, about how they decided to study in the US…
