If you are not graduating next semester and you have room in your academic schedule, you are welcome to apply for another GEO study abroad program! There is no rule that says you can only go once.
If you are a little strapped for time, consider volunteering abroad during a break with OACS or on your own – you may even be able to find funding (ask OACS about the Nichols Humanitarian Fund!).
Consider graduate studies abroad! Several universities around the world welcome international students for graduate degrees. Many of them do not require a placement exam like the GRE or GMAT and offer one-year master’s degree programs.
