"This is an excellent program for a very specific type of person. You need to be prepared for a lot of independence, but if studying math is your primary goal for studying abroad, then BSM offers a unique opportunity to take some really fascinating courses with other students who are passionate about math. Be prepared to spend a lot of time on problem sets. There definitely were classes with lighter workloads and you could organize your schedule to ensure time to travel every weekend if you wished. However, my most rewarding class (graph theory) required a big time commitment. I thought it was worth giving up cultural immersion and travel time to learn more about math, but make sure you're willing to make that sacrifice as well. "
