    Heey guys,

    My name is C@MEL and I'm a sixteen year old student in the Netherlands. When i'm done with college, I don't wan't to go the University immediately. So my dream is to visit the USA and go to high school for a year.
    I still have 2 years to prepare and I got 5 hours English a week at the moment, but the problem is the money!

    For one year to the U.S they ask about 7,5k euro what is about 10k dollar. And this is a non-profit organisation. But the 10k is not enough, I will also need some money to go diner with friends, buy new clothes etc.
    So the total cost for one year would be around the 13k dollars! That is soooooo much.

    I think me and my parents can't afford this (maybe we can but then my parents can't go on holidays, and I don't like that idea).

    So I bought 3 micro niche sites to start earning.

    So if you guys got some nice money methodes to share with my or you want to help me? Shoot me a PM! Thank you all!

    Wish me luck :D

    C@MEL

    Budgeting yourself 3k for living expenses and rent. Try 10k minimum + car.

    You'll get nothing out of highschool (if they let you in) other than being surrounded by children.

    Go to college in the States instead and live like an adult. By the time you have the cash and the VISAs you'll be 18+ anyway.

    Good luck.

    In my opinion it's not worth spending the money to come here for high school.

    Cheers!

    Here in the Netherlands, I think school is boring. And I don't want to the University immediatelyhere in the Netherlands (because I think here in Holland it is boring). I don't want to live the life of a boring dutch kid.

    Just for the experience, I talked to some people who where there and it was great they said. First 5 days New york then you have 3 weeks before school start. It seems fun to me to play in a Football team or something.

    Make sure you purchase your firearm when you arrive in the US. :p

    On a more serious note, you don't need to go to high school to "have fun" in the US. You can find other ways to do it. As someone before suggested, just follow along in your education "going forward", rather than just settling in order to have "fun".

    Good luck.

    Thx for your reply! But the problem is I don't know what I wan't to do yet. Studying economic or something on the University sounds boring to me.

    Maybe when i'm back a job at the police or army, I don't know.

    And when you do srly IM then you can make big money, but it is boring as hell. (it is not boring the way doing it, but just the whole day behind the computer)

    Because of the age you are at, it's totally natural to not know which way you want to go in life. So that is why the best thing to do, is to err on the side of caution, and just keep moving forward, with the "usual" way of doing things. You want to have that paper behind you just in case IM doesn't work out. That will be your safety net, and regardless of how you feel about it now, it will come in handy in the future.

    So, just fight through the boredom while going through it, but also know that in the US, University life is not all bad considering all the frat parties and so on going on there. lol

    Haha, I think I go to University in the Netherlands, for most of them the state pays.

    I'm already in IM for a while but only for dutch sites I have a couple customers and a couple dutch sites, they are earning 2k a year or something but I also spend that money ;p By now I would keep it but still not enough. So i started research on this forum I learned a lot of keyword research which I never had done before on a site of me. Now I wan't and im able to put them in MNS and hopefully I can make some money to buy new sites.

    Thx for your interest!

    In the Netherlands the education is perfect, but just for the expierence to see something of the world.

    When you put it like that, find creative ways to travel around the world on a dime, and have an adventure of a lifetime. You can "couchsurf" or work for your room and board, where the other time you can travel around that city or whatever.

    There are different options, if you are adventurous enough.

    Just work full time at your local Albert Heijn, or any other supermarket for a few weeks. I bet you'll be screaming to go studying.. In the Netherlands there are soooo much studies, you just have to put in some effort into finding one you like..

    Hi C@MEL,

    I'm also from the Netherlands, but I don't think it's a good idea for you to go study in the USA. No offense. If you want it, go do it, but think wisely. You can spend your money on other things, for example trying to make good earning websites. Try, fail, try, fail, try, fail... but you will succeed! Believe me!

    If you really want to go to school in the USA, and you want to realize that in two years, I think you can let that dream become reality. But you have to work hard... very hard... Starting an online business takes long time to set it up, and start earning properly (at least, for me).

    What I recommend you is try writing articles for ten sites. There are a lot of sites who are searching for article writers. If you earn 15 euro per article, per day, you can earn up to 150 euro per day. It takes a lot of time and effort, but I think it's the best way to realize your goal.

    Good luck!

    You can always PM me :).

    I suggest not wasting your time coming to high school over here. Your going to be surroinded by a bunch of immature idiots. College yes. High school no.

    Did you miss the 392,973 threads and 3,666,203 posts in the forum?

    Also, why are you going to college in Netherlands then high school in the USA?
    If you can't afford it, then I guess you'll be stuck where you are, unless you have some serious high marks and SAT scores to impress the schools enough for a full ride.

    As u mentioned your sites make you 2k per year. $2000 / 12 = 166 a month, that is not that much if you ask me. On the other hand, you might mean that each site is making you 2k. And since you have a couple, you earn more than 2k. But then I dont see the problem earning the money for your trip to the U.S...

    1. You are already making money, so just do what you do, but scale it up. Build more sites, get more money.
    2. Try to find an international study. I personally study International Financial Management, which has a mandatory exchange. Meaning I can pick a school pretty much anywhere in the world to study there for half a year. In addition to that, we have to do an internship for 6 months, and it is allowed to do this abroad too.
    3. If you really want to go abroad, then why dont you just start your studies in a different country? You might think this is expensive, but it really is not. You still get your Stufi (student finance allowance from the governent), and on top of that you might be eligable to receive scolarships, such as the erasmusbeurs, or others which will allow you to study abroad.
    4. If its really just for the experience, then there are also tons of possibilities to go abroad with language courses. E.g. You could go to Spain, you can get 15 hours a week of spanish class, and are free to do what ever you like outside class. You can work, just chill, basicly do anything.

    And you mention you "dont want to live of a boring dutch kid", but I really dont think going to high school in the U.S. is that much more fun than in the Netherlands..
