What impressed you positively?

"Honestly, the thing that most impressed me was everyone's confidence that the school would sell itself without their having to control our interactions or activities during the interview process. And it does. The students seem happy; they have numerous opportunities to broaden their horizons intellectually, creatively and socially, and are treated like adults. Also, New Orleans is a city full of excellent restaurants. And it's hard to be unhappy when you just ate a great meal. :)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The thought of how much weight I would gain if I went there! Seriously though, Dr. Pisano's lack of concern about the cost of tuition, and its effect on student loan debt. He has a point, in that from a business perspective it's a much better deal than anyone else starting their own "business" enjoys. However, I'm concerned that because it's perceived as government money, rather than student money, that there's less incentive to try and keep costs down. Also I think he underestimates the proportion of our eventual pay that a loan debt that size represents. But then again, I'm in the repayment period for my college loans, so I have a VERY good understanding of how much debt I can take on based on my expected earnings." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Tulane went from a distant second choice for me, to a place where I could definitely be happy and do well, which makes the tuition issue less relevant." Report Response
