What impressed you positively?

"brand new facility (moved in '05 and the anatomy lab faces the pacific!), location, diversity of student body and city, cultural life" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"having to schedule dates and times of interviews myself...hawaii leaves it up to the interviewee to email his/her interviewers and designate the date and time. Plus side: offers flexibility to those who have strict schedules... But i prefer to have a set date/time so i can schedule around the interview" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"while it's probably good idea to wear a suit, it's not necessary to wear the jacket... because the weather is mostly temperate, the school understands that on some days it may be too hot to wear the jacket... i just wore slacks, shirt and tie." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"overall it was a good experience... difficult to imagine my chances of acceptance since i am an out-of-state applicant... only the top 6 out-of-state applicants get in... but i'm crossing my fingers... Probably the most PBL(problem based learning) based curriculum you will encounter...if you don't like working in small groups or interacting constantly with your classmates, the curriculum might not be for you..."
