I recommend if you are having a hard timeMay 24 2013Architecture
I recommend if you are having a hard time getting accepted at UHM or another Hawaii State University, start at the community college or night school at UHM. Anyone can enroll in classes without having been accepted to a degree program. My department was very difficult to get into, but after taking a semester of core classes and another semester of my intended major classes that were open to all students as part of a Liberal Arts Degree, I was finally accepted into my program.
SAT: 1350 Male
Seriously, who do you people think you are? andOct 19 2011Psychology
Seriously, who do you people think you are? and where do you think you're from, Beverly Hills? University of Hawai'i at Manoa is a good choice if you're in Hawai' amazing price for the type of living you will endure, and education. HPU would be a waste of money, you might as well pay 5k more and at least get the reputation and better resources at a UC or state college even in CA! I moved here from LA, had been accepted to UCLA, and UCSD. Unfortunately, I was forced to move here for a few years due to my husbands career. You can get whatever you want out of ANY university. You put in the work, study, teach yourself and you will shine through whether you had a "good" professor or not. It's amazing how you people actually think it's "hard" to get into and graduate from UCLA. Sure, it has a much better reputation, but unless you're a science major, it's going to be the same amount of energy and time if you want a 4.0. Yeah, sure it would look better if you went to a more prestigious college when applying to grad school, but if you get near a 3.8-4.0 and are in honors, have experience through research or volunteering in your field, you'll be fine. If you're not going to grad school & you're not staying in Hawai'i...probably not the best choice.
