Hi! I got into two seminarys, If I go to one of the seminaries I won’t b going with any friends and I’m really scared for that, but I no that the seminary would b way better for me and everyone tells me I would do great there. If I go to the other seminary i would b at least going with a friend. I am someone who has never been to Israel even and I would b really scared to go alone to seminary. What should I do!!! Help fast I only have a week to decide!!!February 21, 2014 7:24 am at 7:24 am #1043385pixelateMember
Foreign girls have it much harder. In addition to not knowing a soul, they have different accents. You’ll meet new friends right away in the same situation you’re in. Good Luck.February 23, 2014 8:05 am at 8:05 am #1043386RisingSun613Member
well, each situation really depends on the person and the seminary, but my general advice to anyone in this situation would be: DONT GO TO A SEM JUST BECAUSE YOUR FRIENDS ARE GOING! Rather, go to the one that best fits you and you know you’ll do great, even if that means going without a friend. In the end, im sure you’ll make tons of friends- you’ll just have to be a little more outgoing then you normally are at the beginning, but after a couple of weeks youll be fine. and because you know that you will thrive there, it will make it easier to be more outgoing and achieve other goals as well.you don’t want to go through sem regretting not being in another place you could have gone to (that was much better for you) but didn’t go because you wouldn’t have a friend with you. so please, DONT FALLOW YOUR FRIENDS TO SEMINARY!February 23, 2014 3:19 pm at 3:19 pm #1043387bubbles17Participant

I’m so happy to hear that, Bubbles! Had I seen this thread earlier I also would have advised you to go to the sem that suits you, not your friends. Good luck!February 24, 2014 6:26 am at 6:26 am #1043389RisingSun613Member
