AthensBeth said:Could someone check the MSAR for the stats on University of Hawaii? Mainly, how many out-of-state students do they interview?
AthensBeth said:Thanks, I've been thinking about answering this question. I'm not too worried because I genuinely want to make Hawaii my residence. I wrote in an update letter to them that my fiance wants to open an immigration law firm there. While it isn't an existing family connection, hopefully, it will be a compelling enough to consider me.
AthensBeth said:I've heard about haole prejudice, but it doesn't discourage me from moving there. Immigration law doesn't seem like a field that would be off-limits to haoles in Hawaii. Immigration workers work with immigrants, who, by definition would not be Hawaiian anyway.
AthensBeth said:That's not entirely grim. If they interview 83 and accept 6, that means they offered positions to more. Not everyone offered a position goes, especially somewhere as far as Hawaii when they may have acceptances to top schools on the mainland. I'm thinking maybe 20 out of those 83 have a chance at a spot. I'm still waiting for an interview though, so maybe I shouldn't get my hopes up! They told me to take Cell Biology (a req there) next semester to still be eligible, and I sent them my schedule. So, hopefully, I'll hear something soon.
