Going to get straight to the point. I want to find out who my host family is going to be NOW! At the same time I read a post on the culture shocked board that was talking about early and late host family placement. A girl asked something around the lines of "Since my information is the first to be sent to my exchange country won't I get a better host family?" Then a woman who worked for that company said "No that doesn't matter." She went on to explain that some of the best host families who consider hosting take it very seriously and will wait to pick until the deadline. They have the mind set that what if we choose to early and a better student that fits with us more comes along, we already picked. This is another thing I'm now worrying about! I mean I want to know now but if it's too early how will I know I got the best family for my personality? Or what if it's super late because they had to find me a family quickly?! AAAHHH. I just need to shut up and be happy for whatever is going to happen!
