I'd go to OSU personally. I just couldn't be that far away from my friends and family.

Sure, if you happen to meet a potential employer while your their and get on his/her good side then consider you one of the lucky ones. If you were an employer who would you choose? Someone that worked hard and exceeded expectations at a lesser university or someone with tons of natural ability but refused to use it at an elite college?

Everyone gets A's in graduate school. Your GPA means next to nothing.

By the way, as someone that does educate, I can tell you that most people will rise to the discourse level that surrounds them. It's not a coincidence that education patters generally remain consistent in areas over time.

If you're a C student at Ohio State, you're probably going to be a C student everywhere else too, and if the education at another place is so low that you can get A's with the same kind of effort, it's still going to show in an interview.

Grades, like njx said, mean very little in regards to most interviews. They are much more concerned with your general level of knowledge, which can't be conveyed by a GPA.

GPA means a lot actually, but where you went to school means a lot more.

It's not completely irrelevant. But it's only a small piece of the puzzle unless you're doing something academically motivated. A lot of it depends on career goals, so to speak in generalities either way is pretty pointless.

again, your simplifying this too much, and likely because you haven't graduated college yet and are thus desperately trying to prove to yourself that it means something that you went to small town school X and are getting good grades there. it's just not relevant.
Your right in one aspect that over time employers will care more about what you have done in your past jobs more than where you went to college. Although, for your first job in that field employers have no information about you except for where you went to college and what your grades were. Most employers will ask for your transcript so they have your GPA which is probably why they havent asked you for it.

GPA and dedication lead to internships which lead to jobs.

The general attitude towards foreigners in Hawaii isn't exactly ideal, and I've heard some dubious things about the school itself. Were I choosing, I'd go with OSU, but that's just me.

Its sad that you ask for opinions from people that you know nothing about and could have completely different views on things. I mean if you ask Damix how Long Island is he says great. You ask we I tell you its a run down piece of trash and the only reason the Easy coast exist is because of NYC and Florida.

its sad how you think you know more than you do, I asked if anyone from Hawaii could help me because I didnt know how many there were or who has been there. I did not make this post as a potluck for any 16 year old who has no idea what they are talking about to tell me that I should do something because "the football is better"

I think thats why he posted so he can get other people's opinions about the schools. Choosing a college is a tough decision and he is trying to make the best one. It's a tough decision since he cant visit Hawaii until April so he was hoping someone had some insight on the school.

i feel so... understood :D jays right, im not looking for someone to say "go here because..." im looking for someone to say what Hawaii has to offer. I want to know if its boring there, if the facilities are good, how big the dorms are, things like that.

the cost of going to Hawaii will be far greater than tOSU so if money is a factor stay on this side of the pond

And you think we really care where you go to college? Seriously... Your clueless.

I said you shouldn't trust people talking about there own town and you spit out some nonsense about wanting to talk to d-unit and how I think i know more than I do or something... Either way I know more than you as I have gone through this

On a side note you would make a good buckeye...

The school's website might be able to help you with some of that.
