What impressed you positively?

"The admissions office, students, and faculty are all very friendly and approachable. The students acknowledged the difficult realities of medical school, yet all seemed quite happy and well-supported by the school administration, peers, and their instructors." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"One of my interviewers was cordial but didn't seem that interested in my entire file. He asked surface-level questions, and after hearing my responses, went on a little bit of a tangent. Still, this interview went well." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"To make sure I don't have Microsoft Teams app installed, as this caused technical issues and dropped 2/3 of my interview sessions, which fortunately I was able to reconnect quickly. Using Microsoft Teams via a browser is much more stable. The school informed us that technical issues would not be held against us, and this remained true." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The information session, in the beginning, is very informal and helpful. Allows us to meet the admissions team and each other as candidates. Would appreciate more specifics on the actual courses within the new PWH curriculum, but they did their best to give us a broad overview in a limited amount of time. Make sure to have your lunch packed and ready, as you won't get the full 30 minutes for lunch. The Q&A session went longer than expected and this cut into our 30-minute lunch break. This was avoidable, but some fellow interviewees felt the need to ask redundant questions simply for the sake of asking (questions that have been answered already or easily found on the school's website/handouts we were given)."
