"Shidler College of Business covers a wide range of business-related classes from finance to IT, to accounting and business management. This prepares you for a wide variety of careers in and out of business fields. Some of the most enjoyable classes were Business Law and Business Writing."

"The University of Hawaii provides a rich multicultural environment--at the time I attended, It was considered a top school for Asian Studies. I was also able to indulge my passion for dance And music--including Javanese Dance, ballet, hula, and bharata natyam. UHM was lacking in terms of a community feel. Many local students attend as commuters. It also has the feel of a larger school--many lower level classes have 100 or more students."

"The CIS PhD program is very self-directed, which is an advantage at times but may get students lost sometimes as well. Some faculty is very helpful but being an interdisciplinary program, some professors are already too busy with their "home" department to follow up on CIS students progress. Financial aid from the CIS program is practically non-existent (beside 1 TAship and a tiny fund to cover little research expenses) and you will have to look for graduate assistantships in other departments, from what I have seen though, CIS students usually find one without too much trouble."
