    Normally the school will determine what host family you will be assigned to, but that does not mean you do not have any say in it. In my case, the school e-mailed the profile of five host families describing the area they lived in, who lived in the house, if it was a smoking or non- smoking residence, whether there was an internet connection and any other information.. After this, I was given the option to number them from my first choice to the last. The school has the final say but in some cases, you will at least have an idea of where you may be living before your host family is assigned to you.
