>>1046411 Well it depends what you intend to do and where you intend to go while in France. Parts of it are god tier, others are shit tier like in most countries, really depends on your tastes though. The biggest problem being the language barrier outside of Paris and other "big" cities, though you shouldn't have much of a problem if you are residing in the 16th (where Dauphine is) as it is pretty upper class and most people should speak English. On the other hand it is very expensive to live there, though not as bad as London.
Now, if you are afraid Paris will be shit tier, that again depends on your tastes. I have no clue about what a students life is like there as I studied abroad, but from a tourist's perspective as long as you avoid all the eastern districts of Paris (and the 15th) you shouldn't have a shortage of sightseeing (if you're into architecture and culture that is).
>>1046428 Aye, I chose Paris because of the large amounts of transportation (Airports, Trains, buses) which gives me potential to travel other places more easily. Yeah I heard often to avoid the eastern districts. I might be staying in the latin quarter area (not confirmed yet) so it should be fine.
Just curious, where did you study abroad to? How was finding close friends for you?
I suppose finding friends is in my top of the list.
>>1046439 Italy, Milan, Bocconi University. Finding friends was complicated at first as different international student groups tend to stay together, but as soon as we started group projects and activities it went smoothly and naturaly.
And yeah Latin quarter is fine, especially for students as one would think.
>>1046411 >>1046292 Dauphine is the best university for business and finance but still pretty far from the top5 grandes ecoles. (France's "Yale" or "Oxbridge" for business and finance are grandes ecoles but it's really a special case and it's long to explain). But it's still pretty good, like, in the top 10% so enjoy it while you can.
>>1046428 >>1046439 Parisian that lived in the east of Paris (on the shit districts). Now I live near the Eiffel Tower. Basically the shit parts of Paris are : near gare du nord, barbes, 20th, st ouen and outside Paris the 93 department. Depends if you're racist or not and if you're easily scared about people because someone told you it was dangerous districts. My point of view : you'll never have trouble in those districts. The only bad thing about those districts is that people are fucking gross and there's all the homeless guys so the smell and the look of the district is shit. Literally (well maybe not that much, but Sometimes it's fucking disgusting).
About making friend it depends on the people you met. In general there's a lot of parties made by the schools (dunno for dauphine, but the engineering schools do a lot of parties in general), there's associations (nothing like america, but enough to meet people and spend some time doing something you like). Personally I met a guy that came from Colombia and we became friends quickly. I think the biggest problem is the language. If you don't speak it, it will be difficult, but it can be fast to learn it. I know an Italian girl that learned it in 4 weeks to be fluent. She didn't knew a word in French before.
I honestly find it very uninteresting when people from North America (implying that's where you're from) tell me they are going to study in a European country. It's very similarly culturally and demographically. Go to South America, Africa, or Asia you twat. There's so much more to see.
