    Pros

    The best weather you can have anywhere, but it has nothing to do with Univ. of Hawaii.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, inefficiency, nepotism, anything associated with a public system that's a waste of tax payer's money, you will find at University of Hawaii. You can be the brightest and work your butt off, you are not going to get what you deserve unless you know the right people.
