I’m going to be studying in the US (Illinois) next year for the academic year and was wondering if anyone could help with banking. I don’t know which bank would be best to use or if it is worth opening an American bank account. I know Monzo is usually a good option but I applied a year ago and got rejected (I’m not 100% sure why) so that option is out of the question. I’m looking at Revolut currently, is the standard plan good or is it only good if you upgrade? Any help is appreciated.
