i am looking to go to university in britian, would i be be treated poorly as an american by other people or would i be welcomed? i have no idea what to expect.
I can't imagine you'd be treated poorly, not by most people anyway. But there are **** heads everywhere and some people are just mean to anyone and everyone.
You may need to get used to British humour though, sometimes little insults are meant as friendly digs or "banter". I've known some Americans to get offended by this and take it personally.
