The church don't believe that women should ownQuite BrightAccounting
The church don't believe that women should own their successes. You hear me, women, you all should get married and have children, a bunch of them.

The first time I stepped into a professor's office and talked to him about my grade,I wanted some boost in my grade so I can get an A at the end of the semester.He asked me:"Do you have a boyfriend?" YES,HE ASKED ME THAT. Because he explained that eternal marriage is the true happiness, not an A grade. EXCUSE ME?????

Soon you will find out it's hard to network with you male peers because they are almost all married and had children(Probably because female students are far more than male students in this school).Teamwork can be awkward because student A need to go home early and student B can only come after 9pm because he/she need to take care of the baby.

If you are female, and you want some degree of success, you will feel very lonely here in BYUH. Just don't come.

I was double major approved by 3 differentComputer Science
I was double major approved by 3 different Academic Advisers, when I was 75% done with both majors, Susan Wesley dropped one of my major and didn't even bother to inform me... when I talked with the Max Checketts he said that "We don't allow double majors" I told him that I was not informed about it and he replied "Well, we are telling you now" I told him that I am approved by three Academic Advisers for which he replied that "Academic Advisers didn't really knew about it"... later they denied to endorse my OPT application twice; I was sponsored by well know organization at the first time, and second time I was sponsored by another well known organization in addition to the first... they wanted me to go back to my home country, because this is what they want from international... now from 5 months the School Registrar is not sending my degree, and last time she told me to keep reminding her...The education is cheap but you only get what you pay for. If you are international student you will be a victim of "Corporate BS like culture..." that means your rights will be withheld, you can't take internship (only in your home country), you can't get OPT/CT approved (NO MATTER WHAT), if your university approved off campus land lord kick you out or mistreat you, the school officials will favor the land lord to "maintain relationship with the community", there will be a lot of buss to "get Career Services Help" but this is their way to know what each student is planning for! for the international students there is no help, they manipulate you, no resume building help or interview prep (I learned everything from out side while in the field}... career counselors/program managers (in career services) will only waste you time. They have the largest OPT requirements in the world (go check on their web site and compare with other schools), even if you meet them your application approval is depending on the will of the school president... as I mentioned before Corporate BS... if you are international student and planing to go there THINK YOUR WAY TO GET AROUND ALL THIS... in addition to all this be ready to face all sudden changes due to inconsistencies in their continuous evolving policies...
