Want to Study Abroad Senior Year

TheSiberianHuskyTheSiberianHusky Registered User Posts: 3 New Member
So, I have been thinking about studying abroad since 9th grade and I want to see if I can take advantage of it now. I was going to try to study abroad during 11th but I held back because of Junior year being pretty important for me. I have looked at a few sites and saw AFS had a Year long program in japan(the place I really want to go), but I have a few important questions with college and graduation. So, as it turns out this program goes from March, 2018 all the way to February 2019. The questions I have are this:
1. Graduation(for me) is in May of 2018, would that affect me graduating? and would I run into any MAJOR problems?
2. I plan to go to college, so I would not be returning till 2019. How would this affect my college applications? Can I apply during my time in Japan and return to my first semester in 2019? Or would I simply not be able to apply until I returned?
3.If anyone has done senior year programs(it would be an even greater help if you went to japan), how did it affect you?
4. What is the best Abroad program?

Basically, I am still researching this stuff. I would LOVE to visit a new country and get out of the states for awhile before I start my college studies. Im not sure how risky this is, and if it is worth it. If you have any advice that can help me out, please reply:) it would mean a lot.
