 Hello. I graduated from high school this and I have not yet
 applied to any university. I plan on doing so but I am not
 sure what to do as of yet. For my senior year in high
 school I spent 5 months in Japan as an exchange student.
 Also before this I went on a three week exchange to the
 same school. Both exchanges were great experiences for
 me, and I really want to get back in Japan as soon as
 possible. I was looking into going to a 2 year language
 school which would enable me to pass the highest level
 profiency test.I found out that my local VSAC student loan
 center doesn't support any sort of school in Japan so l
 would have to pay for school out of my own pocket or
 through a regular expensive loan.
