yeah, it's pretty hard. i mean, it's not impossible. if u start preparing early on, or go to a junior college for two yrs. like i did it gets u there a little faster.
I would like to know how hard is it to get into college in Japan. I was just wondering since the last two animes I watched (Chobits & Love Hina) they portray it is extremely hard.
And yes, it is extrememly hard to get into college here (ie. passing the college entrance exams). Students spend most of their junior and senior years cramming and attending extra classes to be able to pass. Students who don't pass entrance exams become "ronin" and study alone until they can. Ironically, University in Japan is actually much easier and less demanding than University in the United States. It's incredibly difficult to get in but incredibly easy to graduate.
So is hard but once you get in is easy. I wounder if I could make it there... Anywas it is expensive to go to college over there. Right now is going to cost me $1,400 for 3 clasess at UHCL (University of Houston @ Clear Lake)
Is there many international students going to college ove there?
And about the difficulty:
As Tsurara said, in Japan the "getting in" part is the hardest. Difficult times throughout education can differ greatly depending on the country you're in.
