I'm moving to japan right after high school, and i was wondering if i should get an apartment or live at the college's dorms. What do you think?

I'm studying in Japan right now too, and while I was hesitant about the dorm thing in the beginning, I was totally glad I chose to stay in the dorm (at least for the first semester) in the end. If you're coming alone, staying in a dorm gives you an opportunity to build a lot of valuable relationships and connections that you may miss out on if you go straight to your own apartment.. At the same time, staying in the apartment gives you its own set of benefits. It all depends on who you are, how good your Japanese is, all that jazz. But for me, I found the dorm to be pretty great in the long run. Good luck with your decision! Have a rockin' time, whatever you decide!
