    Brief excerpt from interview: Writing Intensive [courses] are all good, but they are not created equal. I would do research into who the professor is and what the course work is like... If you come up with good results, you should go with it, because what they are teaching you is really going to apply to what you will be doing... It's there for a reason, and it all does help in the end

    Brief excerpt from interview: I'll take the placement with my internship, the relationship I've developed with my supervisors, the dietician and the pediatrician, as well as talking with families, and seeing how a program is run. Those things will stay with me... I enjoyed it. I used hours from two different placements, so three supervisors submitted reports on me. I got to see one of them because she gave it to me and we mailed it in, and I was allowed to see them. We were supposed to go over them... Yes [seeing someone's written report about me has made me think differently about my own writing]. It makes you think more about your personal interactions because you know you are going to be critiqued as well. And to give more thought to how you're treating people. Everything in life is not one-sided.

    Brief excerpt from interview: After graduation I anticipate being here for at least a year... I may apply to grad school at UH, or I may apply on the mainland. [It depends on] what I'm doing with my job, hopefully as a dietician.

    Brief excerpt from interview: I'd like to get into the supervised placement program here, through outreach college. You do it for 10-12 months, and once you complete all the requirements, which are your three rotations, with a certain amount of case studies and coursework, you're eligible for sit for the registered dietitian exam. Once you do that, you get the credential of being an RD... [Writing factors into my future because] if I go back to school I'll be doing a lot of writing. [For instance] to analyze lab cases in your own words, to give a description of someone's history, or if you're counseling somebody, [you have] to write out a report.

    Brief excerpt from interview: With classmates, we became slightly closer because of this joined experience... I became a little closer with my professor, who is also my program director, because she's a very nice lady, like a grandma. She's cultivating the new batch of future dieticians and she got the go-ahead for an internship program within the state. She's very involved... And this class, because you have to meet with her and write your journals, she gives a lot of value to those things. It brought you a little closer with her... And my relationships with my supervisors, who were really nice people. I think I see my major in relation to my future, like how it segues into it. It's phasing us out of the classroom. You actually do what you study in school... I didn't get the placement I wanted. I wanted to do more clinical work, but it's very hard to find that. That would have been even more exciting or different for me. I'm applying to the internship program here.
