    2. Volunteer in your hometown. Laie has tons of ways to be involved beyond just the college. Brigham Young University-Hawaii wants applicants that are also good ambassadors for the school - they want students who will give back to the local community and broader Laie area in general.
    3. Spend your summer doing something that speaks to your values, personal growth, leadership qualities and other less quantifiable characteristics. BYUH needs to see past your test scores and grades - they need to know that you will be a valuable and contributing member of their community. You are more than grades and test scores - your experiences should demonstrate that.

    Prepare Your Application
