How did you prepare for the interview?

"This site helped a lot!! Read over some information about the school to familiarize myself with PBL and my interviewers. I also met with a second year med student early the day of my interviews which really helped because she answered a lot of my questions so I felt better prepared and more informed about the school. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students I met with (including on of my interviewers) were very, very happy with the school. Everyone was extremely nice and encouraging. All the information I learned about the school and PBL impressed me." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities are a little old, but the new building should be wonderful!!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Be prepared to ask plenty of questions when you meet with Dr. Izutsu. Try and make some sort of connection to the state of Hawaii- those students are preferred. The interviewers are very welcoming and relaxed. One of my interviews was at Starbucks. I recommend meeting with a second year med student to answer questions and get a better feel of student life and the school. And of course, stay in Hawaii for at least a week!! It is great!"
