I would also have to agree with this, despite doing my IE six years ago. Relative to the person I was at the time (young(!), untraveled, shy (yes, shy!) and 'academic'), it was the single-most greatest achievement of my life. Sure, for some (most?), it won't be life-changing but I guarantee you'll get a huge amount out of it. And remember, this also represents 'the begining' for you Tara - how exciting!
