What impressed you positively?

"The students wear slippahs (if you have to ask you're out of state) and street clothes. It's relaxed, they are on friendly (if not first-name) terms with their profs." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The way they reduce you into a number between 1-10 is a bit deflating and their initial scoring rubric flattens your MCAT but it is good to see the details of how it works. The campus is great but isolated from the main campus so if you thing interdisciplinary collaboration outside biomedical research.... " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interviews are set up as: the first two are doctors minimally affiliated with the school, the last is the dean of admin. The doctors were friendly and open, the dean is a very serious dude make sure to ask about USMLE test data ect. or at least mention that you've already looked at it. Ask about the research facility since you won't see much of it and they're big on it. Ask about hawaii specific angles at the school... if you have Dr. Chen as an interviewer find his office the day before, the address is REALY hard to find even if you know HNL. Good luck and have fun with it. Oh, and that nice park out in front.. those gentle hills? Old landfill. Still, very pretty, you can surf right out in front." Report Response
