Only Japanese losers go to overseas colleges.
In Japan, go to the Japanese Ivies like Tokyo University, Waseda, etc and graduate with a guaranteed job at some high ranking company or try to enter politics or government.
Japanese companies just care more about the name of college than GPA.
Spending so much money on overseas college since international students pay the highest prices in Western colleges is a waste of money.
Your Japanese friend wasted money on undergraduate education.
You could argue grad school in an overseas college is acceptable but come on, no common sense at all to attend a foreign school just for a bachelor's degree.
Your Jap friend's parents should have saved the college expenses for your friend's first wedding or down payment for the first house she buys in Japan.
