    Do any Canucks want to share their infinite wisdom on studying in the US?
    I just want to know what kind of hurdles I'll be facing as a Canadian when I start Year 1 Pharm.D. Dunno what I am getting myself into when I move to the States...

    Internships: More paperwork? Disadvantage compared to US students?
    Jobs: Can I work outside of campus?
    I-20: What on earth does a I-20 get me?
    Cars: In New York State...if I bring a car, do I need to get a NY driver's license, NY insurance, new plates?!?
    Dollar exchange: I heard that XEtrade is the site to use if I need to change CAD to USD? Is this so?
    Where to work?: Are you guys planning on staying in the States or going back to Canada?

    That's all I can think about on the top of my head, any other info is much appreciated
