Be very careful - your money can be stolen. My friend's son came from Germany for a 4 month course
Be very careful - your money can be stolen. My friend's son came from Germany for a 4 month course in the New School. He wired the security deposit to one of Bond's agents. At the end of the 4 months, he was told that he would get 50% of his deposit in person, and another 50% (more than $1000) would be wired to him. He still has not received the second half more than one year later! I was asked to help, so I spoke to the agent (who is not answering my calls anymore), as well as to Bond's management - which also did not work. Surprisingly, this agent is still listed as active on Bond's site - looks like the management considers such actions of their agents as normal.
