Although we encourage students to provide us with any location preferences they may have, please remember they may be limiting their placement options if they hold out for a certain location. Please also keep in mind that the high cost of living in popular tourist locations is prohibitive to their wages. They can always visit the tourist spots on weekends, vacation time or during the 30 day grace period. We do offer options for a Specific Location request at an additional fee. Please ensure your students request Specific Location on the online HPUSA application.
