    Most students at HBU are on some sort of scholarship or receive some sort of academic aid whether it be athletic, academic, or need based. Additionally, once the aid comes through, most students are only looking at a cost of $3,000 to $7,000 out of pocket each semester (not bad compared to sticker price).

    What is Bang for the buck? ohh is the money worth going to this school? (I am not a genius) If it is then, I won't really know come here and find out. Apparently they are making HBU really BIG like half the size of UH and UH is humongous. Well I've seen the the blue prints and how it's going to look, you should Google it, in the future HBU is going to be well-known so better start now!

    Not worth the money from what I saw, their programs aren't even developed.

    HBU seems very expensive. But financial aid is given based on the cost of the school and your need. It is not outrageous in this aspect..
