    I have an interview on Wednesday for Study Abroad. I applied to institutions in North America. I know that they're going to ask me the fundamental questions of why I want to do it, what I think I can get out of it, and what can I offer to the host intitution.

    So how would I go about answering these questions?

    Because, to be perfectly frank, all I can think of is that I really want to study abroad regardless of any sort of 'logical' reason.

    Thanks for any help.

    Americans are all about out-of-school activities, voluntary work and contribution to the community, so try to bring out these. Good luck!

    Well the easiest way to answer this question imo would be along the lines of:

    -I am interested in gaining an American perspective of (insert whatever course you are doing). Then give a few reasons you want an American perspective.
    -Gain an understanding of the culture.
    -Expands a global view.
    -New experience
