That's less than a dollar a day - less than what you would spend for a dinner for 2 at a neighborhood restaurant.
And it will save you so much time and money!
You can choose to go it alone, and get cheated $1,200 on rent and deposit for your first apartment - like I did. (I learned what the best landlords are and how to get a great deal on rent that will save you hundreds every month - the hard way!)
Or you can try to get your visa on your own, like a couple from Canada did, requiring 3 different trips to the consulate more than an 8-hour drive away from their home in rural Canada. After the second $1,000 trip, they finally hired an immigration specialist I recommended to book their appointments at the consulate, and it worked like a charm.
Or you can ask questions to all the expat groups, and try to sort your way through differing answers, snarky trolls, and disparaging comments, while trying to make sense of the conflicting and often irrelevant answers. If you do that, you may find that the questions you didn't know to ask were more important than the ones you did ask, and learn the important information too late.
